Katie

Halpen
I am a student at the University of Alberta, I've just completed my third year with a major in computing science and a minor in mathematics. I love math because it is the one thing in the entire world that will always be true! In my free time I love to play ringette, go rollerblading, and hang out with my friends. How far have you gone in your math studies: I've completed my minor in mathematics, studying single and multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and various branches of discrete math. GET TO KNOW: Katie If you were a cartoon, which one would you be and why? I would D.W. from the show Arthur because I love to be a pest to my older brother. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten? One time I wasn't paying enough attention and accidentally ate a bunch of moldy cheese. What do you do to have fun? I like to go out to eat with my friends! What's your biggest pet peeve? My biggest pet peeve is when people walk too slow in front of me. If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be? I would have an unlimited supply of Dr. Pepper Zero. What’s your favorite “math” joke? Can't beat the classic... Why is 6 afraid of 7? I love Mathnasium because… I love Mathnasium because I get to help others learn to love math as much as I do!

Taylor

Bulger
I’m an elementary music teacher in Edmonton. Though I’m teaching music, I have always enjoyed math since I was a child (and music uses math too!). I would like to share my enthusiasm and understanding of math with every student in our program. I hope that students will look forward to going to their regular math classes with confidence after enrolling here. How far have you gone in your math studies: I completed Math 31 (Calculus) and Pure Math 30 (grade 12) in high school and Linear Algebra I at the University of Alberta. GET TO KNOW TAYLOR: If you were a cartoon, which would you be and why? I’ll choose Spongebob, because that was one of my favorite shows as a kid and I thought he was very funny. What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten? I tried eating deep fried ice cream. I didn’t know that I was possible to make until I tried it. What do you do to have fun? I like to run, play a variety of instruments including guitar, piano and some others. I love playing chess. What’s your biggest pet peave? The feeling of styrofoam. It’s a weird one! If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be? Lays dill pickle chips, my favorite snack! What’s your favorite “math” joke? What is Pythagoras’ favorite shape? “A square!” (Made that up myself!) I love Mathnasium because… Mathnasium allows me to use my own gifts in math to help others improve their own understanding. This place allows students to make connections to various math concepts and use what they already know and apply it to new topics. I believe this fosters understanding better than simple rote memorization.

Our Mathnasium Mission

Teach children math so they understand it, master it, and love it. Math can change their lives, and they can change the world.

What I love about Mathnasium is the ability to teach problem-solving skills and make math make sense, while also making a student smile.
