Professor Chris Tisdell
Mathematician & Educator
OLM is privileged, and delighted, to announce that Professor Chris Tisdell has joined us as an academic advisor.
Chris is Professor and Chair of Mathematics and Mathematics Education at the University of New South Wales. He is also Vice President Education at the Australian Mathematics Society, an academic board member at Lincoln University College and Honorary Professor of Digital and STEM Education at the University of Queensland.
Our mission at OLM is to develop tools and publications that can facilitate deep, flexible, understanding of geometry and measurement by the students who use them. Chris works with us to provide insight and ‘wise counsel’ in support of our mission. This includes offering insight and innovative ideas while working with OLM directors. This partnership has already produced a patented new process for student geometric constructions using the Mathomat template. Chris also offers feedback and insight for research work being conducted by OLM staff.
