3 Questions in 3 Minutes: Online Summer Geometry

A video spotlight on “Online Summer Geometry," a Tang Institute fellow project
by Paul Murphy

Welcome to the Tang Institute’s video series, “3 Questions in 3 Minutes." These videos offer a glimpse into what inspires Tang Institute fellows and the work that evolves out of their fellowships.

In episode 2, former Tang Institute fellow Paul Murphy, instructor in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, shares insight into his project, “Online Summer Geometry.” Here he shares what he learned about asynchronous vs synchronous learning, what students often lose over the "summer gap," and how his experience benefited the math department when the COVID-19 crisis hit earlier this year.

Stay tuned for more!
