After having several other careers, I have taught advanced high school sciences for the past 24 years. I have just retired from classroom teaching and hope to continue to teach in the guise of providing educational applications for mobile devices.
In addition to teaching Physics, Chemistry and Biology, I initiated and taught a Computer Graphics course. I incorporated many of these skills into images and videos for the teaching of various scientific concepts which I, and other teachers at my school, have used with students. I hope to eventually make these available to a wider range of students on their iPads and iPods.
MathSlate is my first project, the result of learning and practicing the various languages, protocols and processes that are necessary in developing an application. MathSlate is currently avalable in the iTunes store.
My second app is far more ambitious, an animated alphabet. ABCParade is now available in the iTunes App Store, navigate to the ABCParade page for more.
I have just completed and submitted MacroMole. This app uses simple movies, overlays and text to introduce biological molecules. The focus is on proteins and now their structure leads to their amazing variety of functions. Find out more on the MacroMole page.
The character above is Pencilman. He has appeared in a few animations of mine including one where he shows my niece how to write her name.
