“Dr Claire Blackman is a lecturer in mathematics, whose passion lies in mathematics education in tertiary institutions. Her most recent work in creating a mathematics open textbook, Introduction to Abstract Algebra, using open source tools is oriented around not only creating content best suited for the practice and teaching of mathematics within a local context, but also the training of a mathematical mind. In February 2019, Claire was awarded a grant from the DOT4D project, which she is using to develop her textbook and address these ambitions in the teaching and practice of mathematics at an undergraduate level.”
