About ERTAN

Having majored in mathematics education at Marmara University / Istanbul / Turkey, I also got my Graduate Degree from Fatih University / Istanbul / Turkey. I worked as a math coach for 15 years, I am confident that I would make a successful addition to your Math knowledge. In addition to my strong background in mathematics, I wrote 5 books, 4 of them were published. I prepared students for national and international math Olympiads for 15 years. I also organize math competitions and science fairs. I already finished my second master degree.

I don’t need to say that the role of mathematics is to promote the most effective use of mathematics in the natural and social sciences, in applied sciences, in engineering, in industry, in government, and in all other kinds of human activity. When I was teaching at high school, students asked me many times about using math in real life. Instead of answering that question directly I asked them another question “Are there any sciences (including social sciences) which are not related to Math?”. As an intelligent scientist, he or she can also ask intelligent questions and originate new ideas which are only remotely or partly mathematical but which are nevertheless extremely important.

When I started my Ph.D in Turkey I took some pure mathematics classes and I saw that those classes all made me happy no one else. I wanted to change my subject from pure mathematics to applied mathematics and applied to Hampton University, and now I got my second masters degree.

The scope of applied mathematics is very broad, and can be best described by borrowing the following words from Albert Einstein:

“Its realm is accordingly defined as that part of the sum total of our knowledge which is capable of being expressed in mathematical terms.”

These words were originally used to define physics. Taken literally, the statement clearly includes the mathematical theories of economics, biology, communication, etc., and is perhaps a more adequate description of applied mathematics.
Clearly, I want to extend my math background to new studies like Planetary Science, like application of optimization, stochastic process, simulation, decision analysis and biomathematics. I want to learn to perform appropriate collection, modeling and analysis of data using statistical methods and other statistics applications.
All these made me to teach math to new generations.
