About the Author
About Marla Weiss Dr. Marla Weiss, highly respected among her colleagues and students, is a mathematics educator with four degrees: BA in Mathematics, MA in Applied Mathematics, ME in Applied Mathematics, and PhD in Mathematics Education. She has done classroom teaching, school consulting, test preparation, individual tutoring, curriculum design, teacher workshops, math team coaching, materials development, student evaluations, math series analysis, and textbook writing. Her students have won hundreds of awards collectively in MATHCOUNTS, Mu Alpha Theta, Florida Math League, and the International Computer Problem Solving Contest. Additionally, Dr. Weiss owned and operated a private education center with a focus on math offerings. Her background is unique. As the daughter of a mathematics educator, she was reared in a household full of math books that her father used in his multi-faceted mathematics work. He was one of the first math teachers in the country trained in the Sputnik era “New Math.” Not only did Dr. Weiss receive this education in junior high, but also she traveled in the summers with her father in the United States and Canada as he trained other teachers in the movement. Moreover, Dr. Weiss was both a high school student and college counselor at the prestigious (Arnold) Ross Program in mathematics supported then by the National Science Foundation. This grounding in number theory, abstract algebra, and logic, along with other advanced classes, gave her almost a college major in math by the time of her high school graduation. She has taught in various settings including the Duke University Talent Identification Program. Her experience as a computer programmer further enriches her logical approach to math.
