About Dave

I earned my B.S. in 1982 in mathematics education from Bob Jones University, and my M.S. in Mathematical Sciences from Clemson University in 1984.  I returned to Bob Jones in the fall of 1984 and was an instructor of Mathematics for 3 years, and then returned to Clemson University to earn a Doctorate in mathematics.  Having completed my doctorate in mathematics in 1989, I returned to Bob Jones where I have been ever since.   Currently I am a Professor of mathematics and also serve as department chairI am completing my 30th year of teaching.  I also advise all math majors.

My area of interest lies primarily in Abstract algebra.  My favorite courses to teach are Abstract Algebra, Linear Algebra, and Number theory.  In addition to teaching at BJU, I also have been a contributing author for many of the secondary math books at BJU press and advise them during the school year.  This compliments my teaching because it allows me to stay in touch with what is happening on the secondary level so it gives me a much better feel for where mathematically our incoming students are.
