    About the talk

    Prof. James Stewart will offer suggestions for engaging students' attention in the mathematics classroom in such a way as to increase their understanding and make them more active learners. The methods include visualization, technology, physical demonstrations, history, and contests. The discussion of appropriate use of technology will include demonstrations of two interactive CD-ROMs in whose development he has been involved: TEC (Tools for Enriching Calculus) and JTC (Journey Through Calculus). 

    Date: 6 April 2005 (Wednesday)
    Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
    Medium: English

    Biography of Prof. James Stewart

    Prof. James Stewart received the M.S. degree from Stanford University and the Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. After two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of London, he became Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University in Canada. His research has been in harmonic analysis and functional analysis. Prof. Stewart's books include a series of high school textbooks as well as a best-selling series of calculus textbooks published by Brooks/Cole. He is also co-author, with Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, of a series of college algebra and precalculus textbooks. Translations of his books include those into Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Korean, Chinese, Greek, and Indonesian.

    A talented violinist, Prof. Stewart was concertmaster of the McMaster Symphony Orchestra for many years and played professionally in the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. Having explored the connections between music and mathematics, Prof. Stewart has given more than 20 talks worldwide on Mathematics and Music and is planning to write a book that attempts to explain why mathematicians tend to be musical.

    Prof. Stewart was named a Fellow of the Fields Institute in 2002 and was awarded an honorary D.Sc. in 2003 by McMaster University. The library of the Fields Institute is named after him. The James Stewart Mathematics Centre was opened in October, 2003, at McMaster University.
