TALKS
This is a publicly accessible
archive for slides for talks given by Dr. Ron Buckmire. You can also see a link
to see some of my research contributions.
More recently I have expanded my work to
venture into the area of data science. Specifically, applying macbine learning
teachniques to produce mathematical models of the commitment decisions of
students who are admitted to colleges.

UNDERREPRESENTATION IN MATHEMATICS
- 2005-present: I have been involved in a
long-term project to improve mathematics (primarily algebra) instruction in
northeast Los Angeles schools. I co-created and co-taught a class
Mathematics, Education and Access To Power multiple times to give
students a community-based learning experience in mathematics.
- April 2010: "A
Black, Gay mathematics department chair? Or, How I Got Here From There"
(Friday April 2, 2010, Seminar on Underrepresentation in the Mathematical
Sciences, Harvey Mudd College)
