# Dr. Nasser Dastrange

Professor of Mathematics

B.S., University of Tehran, Iran

M.S., Michigan State University

Ph.D., Oregon State University

Was invited to attend the 2018 Spring Texas Geometry and Topology Conference by the Department of Mathematics, University of Houston, Feb. 16-18, 2018. Complete financial support was provided by the University of Houston and the National Science Foundation.

The Joint Mathematics Meetings of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The conference was held in San Diego, CA, Jan. 10-13, 2018. As a member of AMS, I attended many sessions to refresh my knowledge of recent contents and pedagogies of mathematics. These meetings have allowed me to directly apply the latest knowledge of Mathematics in my classes. Complete financial support was provided by Buena Vista University.
