The University of South Florida System

The University of South Florida System is a young and emerging system that currently includes three institutions: USF Tampa; USF St. Petersburg; and USF Sarasota-Manatee. The institutions are separately accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. All institutions have distinct missions and their own detailed strategic plans.   

University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee (USFSM)

 

The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee provides access to professional higher education programs and scholarly research in a personalized living and learning community that graduates successful leaders who empower Florida’s Suncoast to thrive locally, nationally, and globally.

The College of Science and Mathematics at USF Sarasota-Manatee provides an innovative, student-centered educational environment through inquiry-based learning and collaborative research focused on basic and applied sciences and mathematics. We cultivate a dynamic culture by encouraging free discussion, fostering critical thinking, developing strong communication skills, and actively engaging students in research and evidence-based practices under the mentorship of faculty. 

The School of Education, within the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, stresses real world clinical experiences that enrich students’ education through the guidance and effective teaching strategies of our faculty and colleagues in the field. The faculty carries out this work as a community of scholars in an active research environment.  Its guiding principles–learn, lead, inspire, transform–are reflected in every aspect of its program.

 

 

The Programs: Mathematics courses are provided to fulfill the needs of the campus majors and general education requirements. The minor in Applied Statistics (APSM) concentrates on building the necessary tools for students to understand the relationship and application between calculus and statistics. This minor allows undergraduate students across many disciplines to earn a minor in statistics that can be applied to the social sciences, business field, and many other related discipline areas.

In the School of Education, initial teacher preparation focuses on elementary education, and all students take courses in mathematics education, aimed at preparing them to pass state certification exams and to thrive as classroom teachers. Undergraduates take a sequence of two math education courses and graduate students take one.      

Position: This joint position as Instructor I in Mathematics and Math Education is vital to the College of Science and Mathematics and the School of Education, as well as to the university’s general education curriculum.  It is anticipated that the person in this position will be a dynamic, student-centered instructor, prepared to make a significant contribution USFSM. 

The person in this joint position will teach a variety of mathematics subjects from among such courses as statistics, finite mathematics, college algebra, pre-calculus, and the calculus sequence; as well as one course in mathematics education each term. These courses may be offered in person or online.  The person in this position can expect to teach two courses in mathematics and one course in math education each term. The person will also be expected to teach in summer for extra pay.  Further, this person will be asked to consult with the Coordinator of Learning Support Services to assure that math tutoring meets the needs of our students.  At USFSM, the position of Instructor is fulltime, continuing, benefits-eligible, with a promotion track.
