Adjunct Instructor of Mathematics

Description of Job

The Mathematics Department at Edgewood College invites applications for an adjunct teaching position for the Fall 2020 semester.  We are searching for a candidate to teach MATH 121 Statistics and/or MATH 256 Discrete Mathematics. Applicants may apply for one or both courses.

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • A master’s degree in mathematics or a related discipline; PhD preferred.
  • Experience working with undergraduates in the classroom
  • Experience teaching in an online or hybrid learning environment
  • Ability to work collaboratively with department peers and others on campus

MATH 121 Statistics

Course includes descriptive and inferential statistics with the emphasis on drawing meaningful conclusions from data. Topics include measures of central tendency and dispersion, the normal distribution, z-tests, t-tests, linear regression, analysis of variance, Chi-Square tests, and other topics as time permits. This course satisfies the general education mathematics requirement.

MATH 256 Discrete Mathematics

This course introduces students interested in math or computer science to a level of abstraction and argumentation appropriate to those fields as well as providing some of the foundational mathematics – and more importantly, ways of thinking – needed for success in either field. In addition, the course provides students the opportunity to see connections between the two fields such as those between symbolic logic and digital logic circuits or between recurrence and induction. Topics include: logic, methods of proof, sequences, induction, recursion, set theory, functions, relations, counting, probability, graphs, trees, analysis of algorithm efficiency.
