John Neuberger, University of North Texas
David Clark studied at Emory University
in the late sixties when the Mathematics Department was largely populated by first and second generation students of the Moore school, including John Neuberger
and Bill Mahavier, who had a considerable influence on his career.
Before those two classes, I had had probably ten upper-level and graduate mathematics classes, did very well in all, BUT I realized that I did not really understand the mathematics until I took courses from John
, Bill, and several other excellent practitioners of the Moore Method.â€
Gordon has used Socratic methods in his mathematics classes every year since that first class with John under whom he earned his Ph.D. at the University of Tennessee.
Educated at Auburn University, Emory University
, and the University of North Texas
where he earned his Ph.D. under John Neuberger
in 1995, he has taken more than a dozen courses taught via the Moore Method by nine individuals, each an academic descendant of R. L. Moore or H. S. Wall.
He is an academic son of John Neuberger
, although he credits Bill Mahavier with introducing him to the Moore Method in graduate topology at Emory University
Lee writes, "I am almost certain that, had it not been for the patience and generosity of Bill Mahavier and John Neuberger, I would never, at Emory or anyplace else, have been given the opportunity or encouragement to develop, much less earn a Ph. D. It is for this personal experience more than anything else that I am a committed Moore Method practitioner."
John W. Neuberger
John Neuberger is Regents Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Texas.
research interests are partial differential equations with an aim toward a central theory of the subject, numerical analysis, functional analysis, real variables, superconductivity, and algebraic geometry.
has published over 100 papers on these subjects and directed 28 doctoral students.
describes his experience with IBL this way: "My first exposure to IBL (Moore Method) came from Moore himself in 1952-53 as a member of his calculus course.
After teaching at Bayside High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia for four years, he entered graduate school and received a PhD in mathematics from Emory University in 1977 with his thesis directed by J. W. Neuberger.
At Emory, Ed took Moore-Method courses from David Ford, Phil Tonne, William Mahavier, John W. Neuberger
, and Mary Frances Neff.
