Jonathan Weisbrod is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC), Life Member of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), and individual member of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) and Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR). He has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Rowan University in Mathematics and is currently a doctoral candidate at New Jersey City University studying Community College Leadership. His primary research area is undergraduate research programs particularly at community colleges.
Jonathan Weisbrod started at RCBC in 2011. Teaching mathematics at all levels from Prealgebra to Differential Equations to special projects in mathematics is his passion at work. Exploring mathematics with non-STEM majors and finding the connection between math and his students’ worlds is particularly gratifying. He lives near campus with his wife and three small children and enjoys gardening, soccer, and home tech toys.
Aside from teaching, he helped develop and has served as co-advisor of the RCBC math club and competition team since 2012 (chartered by the Mu Alpha Theta National High School and Two-Year College Mathematics Honor Society in 2014) and introduced undergraduate research in mathematics to the college in 2013. He was a Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics (CURM) mini-grant recipient in 2019-20. Investment in undergraduate research is his primary service to the college and profession.
For the Mathematical Association of America, he has served on the MAA-NJ Executive Board (2015-present) in various roles, the Committee on Two-Year Colleges (2019-22) the Committee on Technologies in Mathematics Education (2022-present), and as a member of the MAA Focus Editorial Board (2022-present). He is a member of three SIGMAAs: UR, RUME, and IBL, and currently serves as the Electronic Resources Coordinator for SIGMAA-UR.
For the AMATYC, he is Vice-President-South for New Jersey Affiliate organization (2018-present), serves as the New Jersey State delegate (2019-present), and as a member of the editorial board of the MathAMATYC Educator journal (2020-present). As the AMATYC Liaison to Mu Alpha Theta, he is also a member of the Mu Alpha Theta Governing Council (2021-present).
