Hi.  My name is Murphy Waggoner, and I have been a professor at Simpson since 1992.  I’m a mathematician, and my interests are teaching and applications of mathematics.  Lately I have been involved with combining my love of math and my love of art.  I have taught Mathematics of Art three times and had a great time.  I hope the students did, too, and I can’t wait to teach it again.

In 2009 I finished a Spanish degree as well (so I am a Simpson grad!)  I strengthened my Spanish speaking and listening skills while leading a group of students on a semester abroad to Argentina in Spring 2014.

I have a part-time administrative position as the Director of Academic Assessment.  In this job I work with academic departments to make our education programs the best they can be.

I hope I get a chance to meet you on campus.  My office is Carver Science Hall.  Stop by sometime and introduce yourself!
