Ronald Monson

Ronald Monson integrates Mathematica into most of his teaching, research, writing, and consulting workflows. This includes: creating and deploying Demonstrations to teach numeracy, literacy, digital fluency, statistics, and data science; applying HPC to learning analytics and for running satisfiability experiments; and analyzing and optimizing client business opportunities. He is a previous Visiting Scholar at Wolfram Research, has conducted workshops for Victoria’s Department of Education, and independently developed packages combining Wolfram Workbench with a user-developed, front-end IDE.

Ron started using Mathematica as an undergraduate at The University of Western Australia in the mid-nineties before working as a researcher coding diagnostics that treat students’ mathematical misconceptions in a computer-aided learning system (Calmaeth). His PhD work included a thesis and packages written in Mathematica. Ron worked for several years as a mathematics lecturer at Victoria University’s Student Learning Unit. Since early 2013, he has been a learning advisor in the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Science at Edith Cowan University.
