Matthew Leingang is Clinical Associate Professor in the Mathematics Department of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. Since 2010 he has directed the department's undergraduate program as Vice Chair for Undergraduate Affairs. He has specialized in teaching calculus at the undergraduate level for over ten years, and since 2007 has managed the department's Clinical Faculty program. He studies and develops methods of integrating technology into undergraduate courses, including social and visual media. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Educational Advancement Foundation.
Professor Leingang earned a Ph.D. from Harvard in 2000. His thesis on generalizations of momentum was published in the Pacific Journal of Mathematics, and he has since authored papers in training of graduate student teachers and course materials for probability. His calculus textbook—the first to be developed completely within the online electronic medium—will be published by John Wiley & Sons in 2014.
