Jim Brady, Math Instructor

"For some people, taking a math class is like, 'Pleeeease, don't hurt me!' says Jim Brady, Dean of Computing, Math and Science. Jim meets this fear with friendliness.

Jim also advises: "Math is not a talent -- it's a skill. If you make the effort, you'll be good. If you don't, you won't."
