Math Department Spotlight

in Features by

Andy Randrup –

  1. What Math class do you teach? AP Calculus (AB).
  2. How long have you been working at Wesleyan? This is my first year.
  3. What made you want to be a Math teacher? Math has always come very easy to me. In high school, I enjoyed helping others understand their Math assignment. During my junior year in high school I decided to go in the Army for 20 years and then retire and teach high school math. God had different timing for me.
  4. What is your favorite in-class memory?  I had a deal with 5th period that I would give them cookies if every single student had their laptops open, notes ready and calculator on their desk when class started. One day they did, except Stevie Crawford walked in late, but he literally walked in with his laptop open, and his calculator in his hand.
  5. What is your favorite Wesleyan memory? Pretty much every day laughing with my students.
  6. Most embarrassing moment at Wesleyan? Fortunately, I’m too old to really care when I mess up…and when I do, I’m too old to remember.

The most in demand social media app that high schoolers tend to gravitate towards is Snapchat. It is so easy to get caught up in a world away from the world as stress skyrockets and the craving for an escape increases. Snapchat is probably one of the most difficult apps to cleanse from because of the various attributes that this app holds including streaks, location devices, group chats, memories and stories. Essentially, Snapchat holds most of the characteristics and functions that other apps have, but all consolidated into one.
