Pat Farrell has been sharing his love of mathematics—and more recently, computer science—with young people for 40 years. Equally passionate about issues of social justice, he has served on Andover’s Access to Success and Antiracism task forces. He also taught for six summers in the (MS)2 program and four summers in the ACE program.

Fellow

Jacque Hugon 79

Fellow

Jacques Hugon joined the Tang Institute in 2015 to focus on the development of homegrown technical solutions in support of Andover’s faculty, students, and external partners. Those solutions include EduCompass and Amplify.

EduCompass (www.educompass.net) is used by Phillips Academy to assess incoming students in math, music and world languages, and assist department chairs in placing students in these disciplines before they arrive on campus. EduCompass is also used by other programs on campus, such as (MS)2 and Summer Session for math placement, as well as several independent schools that have joined the platform to administer placement tests in math and world languages.

Amplify (amplify.educompass.net) started as a content repository for math questions used in placement tests and has evolved into a homework platform for math and chemistry, leveraging the ~10,000 questions the Andover faculty has created over the years. Amplify lets faculty curate and share math and chemistry problems with other teachers and gives Andover students a platform on which they can practice and hone their skills.

Prior to joining the Institute, Hugon served as an instructor in mathematics and computer science at Phillips Academy from 2001 to 2015.

Hugon began his career as a software engineer and manager in the high-tech industry, and was involved in entrepreneurial ventures in the fields of video game design, personal computer peripherals, and electronic TV program guides. Hugon holds AB, SM, and MBA degrees from Harvard University.
