Adjunct Faculty – Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics is looking for adjunct instructors for the fall semester 2017 to teach sections of mathematics that recently became available. Lasell College is looking for instructors who can teach this class in a manner which is consistent with its connected learning philosophy, where the students can discover the relevance of their curriculum to the world around them.

The classes potentially needed to be filled for the entire semester are:

MATH 106 (Algebraic Operations) on Tuesday/Thursdays from 5 - 6:15 P.M.

MATH 208 (Statistics) on Tuesday/Thursday from 3:30 to 4:45 P.M.

MATH 215 (Discrete Mathematics) on MWF from 3 to 3:50 P.M.

Course Introduction (as described in our course catalog):
MATH 106 - Algebraic Operations:
This course is intended to strengthen students' ability in algebra. The course begins with introductory topics such as operations with real numbers, linear equations and inequalities, polynomials and factoring, quadratic equations and systems of equations. This course also includes an introduction to rational expressions, radicals and rational exponents.

MATH 208 - Introductory Statistics:
This is an introductory course in descriptive and inferential statistics with an emphasis on applications in business and the social and biological sciences. Topics include: data analysis, and graphical methods of describing data, measures of central tendency and variability, probability, the normal distribution, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, correlation, and regression analysis.

MATH 215 - Discrete Mathematics:
Topics will include logic, proofs, algorithms, counting, recurrence relations, graph theory, trees, networks, Boolean algebra, and automata.

Qualifications
A minimum of a master's degree in mathematics or mathematics education and previous teaching experience is preferred (and mathematics educators versus scholars are also preferred).

Candidates interested in teaching MATH 106 must have a background using on-line software and experience with MyMathLab is preferred. 

Please submit a letter of interest, CV and contact information for three professional references.

Timeline:
Classes start on Tuesday, September 5th. Interviews will be conducted immediately after reviewing applications based on qualifications
