Description: Blog about "teaching and doing mathematics at a liberal arts college." Posts by this Smith College professor date back to July, 2006: "instability and control"; "the end of a good man's life" (on the death of mathematician Adrien Douady); "Klein's quartic and me"; "mathematics is mining"; "thinking about thinking about thinking"; "standards for multivariable calculus, first pass"; "some of my favorite Desmos projects from this semester"; "thinking about thinking about thinking" (on metacognition and standards-based grading); "be careful with computers"; "a bit of ex-spline-ation"; "my one goal for teaching next year"; "geometry at the fair"; and "big mistake or little mistake?" Bowman taught math in West Africa for the Peace Corps before earning his doctorate at Cornell University, which he concluded by studying in Marseille.
