Profile:
Dr. Victor Piercey holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Arizona as well as a law degree from Columbia University.  He teaches in the actuarial science program as well as lower level courses.  He is particularly interested in combining his legal experience with his mathematics teaching in order to improve students’ mathematical experiences.  He is drawing on this experience in creating and teaching the Theory of Interest course along with the corresponding exam preparation course.  He also brings this perspective into lower level courses where he focuses on quantitative literacy and reasoning.  In connection with this effort, he was an author for the Dana Center’s Quantitative Reasoning course, part of the New Mathways Project.  He is currently working on a sequence of courses for business students entitled Quantitiative Reasoning for Business.
