Dan Butler, Minnesota Math Bowl coach, was featured, and Department of Educational Psychology quantitative methods in education PhD student and fellow coach, Mike Huberty, was quoted in a recent Pioneer Press article, “Math is no problem for these stars at the Minnesota Math Bowl.”
Like Huberty, Butler who is a teacher at Mounds View High School also has a Department of Educational Psychology connection. He works with Andrew Zieffler, senior lecturer in the QME program, as part of the College of Continuing Education’s College in the Schools (CIS) program and teaches “EPSY 3264: Basic and Applied Statistics” to academically prepared high school students.
The article mentions this Minnesota Math Bowl will be Butler’s last. He is retiring from coaching and teaching at the end of the school year.
Huberty told the Pioneer Press the team will miss Butler. “He’s the big picture guy. He’s the motivator,” he said.
