“Climate Change: Creatively Use Good Mathematics to Model the Reality”
March 5, 2021; 7:00 pm
Tom has taught mathematics for 35 years at Fitch High School in northeast Ohio where he earned National Board Certification, the Presidential Award, and other recognition. Tom also taught mathematics, computer science, and mathematics education as an adjunct instructor at Youngstown State University for 38 years. Since 2009 he has been working full time as a Senior Math Advisor for Texas Instruments in Product Development and Strategy. Tom has been providing professional development nationally and internationally since 1995, traveling to 49 states and 7 countries. Most recently his interests are increasing ACT and SAT student success, Transformational Geometry, Families of Functions and Their Transformations, and math modeling data that creates social awareness.
In August 2019, Tom attended a 3-day seminar with former Vice President Al Gore and his Climate Reality Project in Los Angeles. Since then, he has given over 30 presentations about climate change, its consequences, and modeling climate data with high school mathematics in order to make students aware of Climate Reality, but at the same time illustrate useful applied mathematics. This past January, Tom attended an online webinar with Al Gore and received an update to the state of climate globally. This is what Tom wants to share with you today.
