Description: Scholarship and teaching by a professor of mathematics at the University of Northern Iowa. Hitchman's research focuses on differential and metric geometry, dynamical systems, and Lie theory, with particular interest in discrete subgroups of semisimple Lie groups and the ways in which they can act on compact manifolds by diffeomorphisms. As an educator, he teaches his geometry undergraduates using Sage and Inquiry Based Learning (IBL), applying variants of the Moore Method and experimenting with Standards Based Assessment (SBA) and Standards Based Grading (SBG). See especially, his Euclidean geometry class blog, Standing on the Tables, and the guided practice materials from his Math in Decision Making course.
