Peter Liljedahl

Dr. Peter Liljedahl received the 2009 SFU Excellence in Teaching Award.

It’s a pretty tough audience, he says, since most of these students have very negative views of mathematics. Still, it’s a challenge he relishes. His teaching approach is to set students accessible tasks that encourage them to explore and discover mathematical concepts.

“I try to give students who are very resistant to mathematics an experience that is other than what they’ve had so that they can find in themselves their inner mathematician,” he says. “I love changing minds more than anything else.”
