Mathematics Day 2023
Wednesday, March 15
10-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m.
Former University of Findlay math professor Pam Warton, Ph.D. to speak on campus!
Dr. Pam Warton retired from the University of Findlay’s Mathematics Department in 2022. She received a Bachelor’s of Science with a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics from BGSU in 1981. She started her career at General Motors in Detroit working on Finite Element Modeling and Surfacing applications. She was put in charge of training new programmers and realized how much she enjoyed teaching. She started graduate school in 1988 at BGSU where she received her Ph.D. in 1995 in infinite ordered group theory with a dissertation entitled “Lexicographic Powers of the Real Line”. She taught at BGSU for five years, but moved to Siena Heights University after becoming disgruntled with large class sizes. She began teaching at The University of Findlay in 2006.
While at the University of Findlay, Dr. Warton started the Euler Math Club as well as applied for and was awarded a charter for the Ohio Tau section of Pi Mu Epsilon, a mathematics honor society. She served as chair of the department at UF from 2009 to 2017. She is a member of Pi Mu Epsilon, Phi Beta Phi, and Sigma Xi. She also served as the Secretary of the Ohio section of the Mathematical Association of America for many years. She retired in August of 2022. Her greatest joy was teaching, doing undergraduate research projects, and getting to know her students and making a difference in their lives.
