Former Mathematics Professor Warton to Present at Math Day
University of Findlay will celebrate Math Day on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, with a visit from former University of Findlay math professor Pam Warton, Ph.D. Findlay’s Math Day is held annually to celebrate math by explaining some of its complexities and introducing new concepts in a compelling way.
Warton’s presentations will be in Winebrenner Theological Seminary Auditorium at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Warton retired from the University of Findlay’s Mathematics Department in 2022. She received a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics from Bowling Green State University 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 and Siena Heights University before she began teaching at University of Findlay in 2006.
While at University of Findlay, 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. Her greatest joy was teaching, doing undergraduate research projects, getting to know her students, and making a difference in their lives.
