# Bevin Maultsby, Department of Mathematics at NCSU

I am a Teaching Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at NC State University and the coordinator for Distance Education in the Mathematics department.

I am broadly interested in the scholarship of Teaching and Learning. My interest include online teaching and course creation, course design, alternative assessments (mastery and standards-based grading, ungrading), inquiry-based learning, and using generative AI in the classroom. My mathematical background is in applied dynamical systems.

Additionally, I post a lot of videos on my YouTube channel. Some of these are used in my courses, while others are just for fun.
