Author Biography

Tom Carson’s first teaching experience was teaching guitar while an undergraduate student studying electrical engineering. That experience helped him to realize that his true gift and passion are for teaching. He earned his MAT. in mathematics at the University of South Carolina. In addition to teaching at Midlands Technical College, Columbia State Community College, and Franklin Classical School, Tom has served on the faculty council and has been a board member of the South Carolina Association of Developmental Educators (SCADE). Ever the teacher, Tom teaches outside the classroom by presenting at conferences such as NADE, AMATYC, and ICTCM on topics such as Combating Innumeracy, Writing in Mathematics, and Implementing a Study System.

 

Bill Jordan received his BS from Rollins College and his MAT from Tulane University. A decorated teacher for more than 40 years, Jordan has served as the chair of the math department at Seminole Community College and has taught at Rollins College. He has been a member and leader of numerous professional organizations, including the Florida Two-Year College Mathematical Association (president), Florida Council of Teachers of Mathematics (district director), and others. In addition to his work on the Carson series, Jordan is also the lead author of _Integrated Algebra and Arithmetic, 2/e, also published by Pearson. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, traveling, and hiking.
