Bio: 

My name is Katy Williams and I am Mathematics Instructor at Oregon State University. I primarily teach College Algebra (MTH 111), Algebraic Reasoning (MTH 103), and Mathematics for Management, Life, and Social Sciences (MTH 245) as well as coordinate MTH 111. I helped bring the Undergraduate Learning Assistant Program to the Math Department which is now prevalent in MTH 103 (on-campus and Ecampus), MTH 111 (on-campus and Ecampus), MTH 112, MTH 245 (on-campus and Ecampus), and MTH 341. I was involved a team redesign effort of College Algebra, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in which the DFW (Ds, Fs and withdraws) rate was decreased to less than 20%. I have redeveloped three online courses and taught two statistics courses, ST201 and ST314. I am passionate about building community in my classes, helping students learn from their mistakes, and creating engaging activities to introduce material.
