Malgorzata Dubiel wins 2011 Vancouver YWCA Women of Distinction Award

Malgorzata Dubiel – Senior Lecturer of Mathematics, SFU

Malgorzata strives to help students overcome “math anxiety.” With over 40 years of teaching she applies her experience to improving math education in Canada. She works with elementary school teachers and children to change the misconceptions about math that are formed at an early age. Malgorzata also established math camp s, conferences and community outreach programs for students of all ages. Her contributions have encouraged many women to engage with and consider careers in mathematics, a field where women are still underrepresented. She is a recipient of the 3M National Teaching Fellowship, the SFU Excellence in Teaching Award and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences Education Prize.

Congratulations and best wishes!
