Dear George,

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Aerospace engineer, retired 1996: 35-year career as a technical specialist in aircraft and space vehicle structures. 9/89-9/04 Oxnard Community College - part time faculty 9/84-6/86 West Coast University - part time faculty Taught undergraduate students in Engineering Economic Analysis, Experimental Methods for Engineers, Static's & Strength of Materials, Materials Science, Introduction to Engineering, Engineering Design (CAD), Elementary & Intermediate Algebra, Linear Algebra, College Algebra, Fundamentals of Arithmetic. 1/68 - 3/71: College of Aeronautics - Assistant Professor Taught undergraduate students in Strength of Materials, Materials test laboratory, Thermodynamics, Engineering Design, Aircraft Structural Analysis, Mechanics, and Introduction to Computers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In mathematics, I teach both the explicit-axiomatic and implicit-visual methods in parallel. One of my teaching techniques consists in demonstrating that every example problem in the textbook, which uses the axiomatic method exclusively, can be solved more easily through the use of numerical techniques that produce symmetry. The state-mandated criteria require the solution of at least 70% of the algebra problems to pass with a "C" or better. The criteria do not require that the students solve the equations in the most difficult way possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Best teacher award 1970 at the College of Aeronautics. Most of my students appreciate an intuitive method that enables them to do and understand algebra, many for the first time. This is evidenced by the written remarks made on the unsigned evaluation sheets which are overwhelmingly positive. These are typical and authentic remarks because they are anonymous: 1.This is the first time I have ever understood math. Mr. Mandras is my favorite Professor. 2. Mr. Mandras is an excellent math instructor and has helped me overcome my math fears. He encourages students to believe that they can achieve. 3. Mr. Mandras has shown me a different side of Algebra. It is not as intimidating once he has explained it. I am thankful for having an instructor like him on this campus.
