Welcome to my website. Most likely you are one of my students, in which case thanks for making use of my course website! You can find a link to your specific class in the top right. Teaching math is one of my greatest passions, and I look forward to passing on what I know to you. Please make sure to take a look at the syllabus and course calendar in particular, since they contain important information that will help you and me stay organized!

 

If you would ever like to visit me, you can always come see me in my office, PSY 229 (in 64 Cummington Mall). We can talk about the course, homework, quizzes, or anything related to math. I look forward to seeing you there.

 

Also, if you ever have any questions, you can always email me at my BU email address, hharper@bu.edu. Just please put MA Your Class Number in the subject so that my email can sort it and keep me organized!

If you are here because you are interested in my teaching, you can find my CV here.

 

I believe that an inquiry based learning style leads to students retaining information longer, because they can own the material they put so much effort into discovering. I also believe that teaching good habits of thought and organization helps students find solutions for themselves.
