Author Biography

Alan Bass earned his Master of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Presently, he lives, writes, runs, swims, bikes, hikes, and plays music with his wife Holly in sunny San Diego, CA. (He also enjoys fine wine and all things nerdy). He is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at San Diego Mesa College (just got tenure) and has been teaching developmental math for more than ten years. He is a big advocate for math study skills so, through a grant project called Pathways through Algebra, he got into networking with other schools to make study skills programs happen. He has worked on developing learning communities, establishing curriculum and pedagogy for study skills classes, and methods for incorporating study skills directly into the classroom. He has created and accumulated a ton of material, and wants to share it with you!
