Kien Hwa Lim, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor Mathematical Sciences

UT El Paso

As an educator, I seek to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics by transforming my students' views of mathematics from a collection of facts and procedures to a discipline that involves thinking and sense-making. My students, who are mainly prospective teachers, experience a learning environment that helps them grapple with the mathematics, communicate their reasoning, challenge each other's ideas, learn from mistakes and consequently deepen their understanding.
