BOLIVAR, Mo. – Southwest Baptist University professor and chair of mathematics department, Dr. Kevin, Hopkins, recently presented at the Missouri Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Hopkins’ abstract for his presentation was as follows: "Geogebra is free, web-based software that does dynamic graphing. This allows for animations that illustrate topics in Pre-Calculus. This talk shows animations and instruction on how to create more. Come with ideas for dynamic illustrations you would like to create."

Hopkins was also honored as with the Post-Secondary Outstanding Teacher Award for 2010 as result of nominations.

In response to his award Hopkins said “I am amazed by and grateful to God for the many opportunities for service to students and teachers of mathematics that He has provided me in my twenty two years of service at SBU.”
