While Professor Musser was at OSU, he was awarded the university's prestigious College of Science Carter Award for Teaching. he is currently living in sunny Las Vegas, where he continues to write, ponder the mysteries of the stock market, entertain his faithful yellow lab, Zoey, and enjoy watching his granddaughter blossom into a young lady.
Blake E. Peterson is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics Education at Brigham Young University. He was born and raised in Logan, Utah, where he graduated from Logan High School. Before completing his BA in secondary mathematics education at Utah State University, he spent two years in Japan as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. After graduation, he took his new wife, Shauna, to southern California, where he taught and coached at Chino High School for two years. In 1988, he began graduate school at Washington State University, where he later completed an M.S. and Ph.D. in pure mathematics.
After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Peterson was hired as a mathematics educator in the Department of Mathematics at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, where he taught for three years. It was at OSU that he met Gary Musser. He has since moved his wife and four children to Provo, Utah, to assume his position at Brigham Young University. As a professor, his first love is teaching, for which he has received a College Teaching he Award in the College of Science. He has also designed the "Mathematics Teaching with Technology" and "Mathematics Methods" courses at Brigham Young University.
Dr. Peterson has published papers in Rocky Mountain Mathematics Journal, The American Mathematical Monthly, The Mathematical Gazette, and Mathematics magazine, as well as NCTM's mathematics Teacher and Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School. His current research interests are the mathematical dialogue that occurs during teacher collaborations. This research recently took him back to Japan where he studied mathematics student teachers at a Japanese junior high school. In addition to teaching, research, and writing, Dr. Peterson has done consulting for the College Board, founded the Utah Association of mathematics Teacher Educators, is an associate chair of the department of mathematics education at BYU.
