Hello! My name is Erica McEvoy, and I am an instructor for SAS100AX. I am passionate about learning and using Math in everyday life, and love being able to share that passion with my SAS students. I hold BS degrees in Physics and Mathematics, an MS in Astrophysics, and am currently finishing my PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Arizona. In both my research and teaching, my goal is the same -- to demonstrate the creative power of mathematics in solving problems from the big, complex ones (e.g., Astrophysics) to the seemingly "small" ones of everyday life, in order to help and inspire others to discover the joy of problem solving in their own lives.
