Dr. Jennifer Szydlik wins 2010 UW System Regents' Teaching Excellence Award
Dr. Szydlik, an award-winning professor of mathematics, joined the UW-Oshkosh faculty in 1995. She believes mathematics is “as natural for us to create and love” as art, music, or literature. Students who confess to a phobia of math leave her classes not only with a newfound appreciation of the beauty and logic behind mathematics, but also with skills widely applicable to life and learning. She received distinguished teaching awards from UW-Oshkosh in 2004 and from the Wisconsin Section of the Mathematical Association of America in 2009. A nationally recognized researcher and author, Dr. Szydlik is noted for co-authoring a McGraw-Hill Company series of textbooks for prospective elementary and middle school teachers.
