Bio

Patricia Kiihne is active in the Illinois Section of the Mathematical Association of America where she has served in many board roles:  Director-at-Large, Director for Private Colleges, and currently as Secretary-Treasurer.  For three years she ran a program for middle school and high school science and math teachers on differentiated education and gender.  Her dissertation work was in abstract algebra (factorization in commutative rings).  

I enjoy answering students' questions and working with them to solve problems. Some of the best learning happens in my office as we're working on homework assignments.
