STEM 223


Throughout his teaching career, Professor Rosenberg has aimed to make the beauty and utility of mathematics accessible and inspiring to every one of his students. When he is not teaching or thinking and writing about how to teach better, he is usually engaged in childish activities with his kids. In the spring he can be found capering around the area with his Morris dance team. He does not manage to contra dance, tango, rock climb, perform tricks on aerial fabric, hike, or play strategy games nearly often enough.
