Elizabeth K. Sattler
Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Instructor of Starting STEM Savvy (Summer Institute)
I’ve been teaching in the math department at Lawrence for five years. I’ve spent my whole life in the Midwest, starting in North Dakota where I grew up and completed my undergraduate and graduate studies. I spent two years in a visiting position at Carleton College in Minnesota before settling in Wisconsin at Lawrence. As an undergraduate, I started in biology, briefly switched to electrical engineering, and eventually found my home in mathematics. I enjoy working with students who are finding their way to the right major and like how the liberal arts model allows them to explore new areas and a variety of interests.
During my five years at Lawrence, I’ve become more interested in teaching and developing our foundational courses in precalculus, calculus, and discrete math.
