“In the beginning, my students are scared. But after a while, they become my colleagues. I love that transition, and I think the students do, too.” 

Professor of Mathematics Annalisa Crannell inspires students to think bigger and ask questions that even trained mathematicians wouldn’t think to ask. 

From courses in calculus to projective geometry, Dr. Crannell teaches mathematics as a way to understand the patterns that underlie ideas and physical phenomenon. For 25+ years, her enthusiasm has sparked curiosity and implored students to have fun with math.
