Dr. Richard Robinson

Richard Robinson is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Citadel. Richard holds a PhD in Mathematics Education from the University of Tennessee, where he also earned a graduate degree in Mathematics. Richard has served as a secondary mathematics teacher in private, public, and STEM high school settings. Previous mathematics research includes work with variable tension splines and finite element method approximations of the substructure of smart materials. Current research interests include disciplinary literacy, positioning theory, and the use of discourse analytic techniques to improve student engagement in the mathematics classroom.
