About The Author

Gary K. Rockswold

Gary K. Rockswold

Dr. Gary Rockswold has been teaching mathematics for 34 years at all levels from 7th grade to graduate school, including junior high and high school students, vocational, talented youth, graduate students, undergraduate students, and adult education classes. Now retired, he most recently served as professor of mathematics at Minnesota State University – Mankato. Rocksworld graduated with majors in physics and mathematics from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Gary received his Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Iowa State University. He has an interdisciplinary background and has also taught astronomy, computer science and physical science. Outside of mathematics, Gary enjoys spending time with his lovely wife and their 2 children.

Showing why mathematics matters – In College Algebra with Modeling and Visualization 6th edition (PDF) Gary Rockswold doesn’t just mention real-world examples; he teaches mathematical concepts through those applications. For example, if we look at Facebook usage over time, what might that tell us about predictions and linear growth? In this way, college students learn the concepts in the context of the world they know, which leads to better understanding and retention. From there, the author shows a connection between modeling, application, and visualization. Dr. Rockswold is known for presenting the concept of a function as a unifying theme, with an emphasis on the rule of 4 (numerical, graphical, verbal, and symbolic representations). The latest 6th Edition emphasizes conceptual understanding with new in-chapter features and assignment options, while at the same time providing tools to empower teachers and instructors to make their classroom more active through group work and collaboration.
