Dr. Cindy Kaus, professor of mathematics at Metropolitan State University, has been named the recipient of the Mathematical Association of America's (MAA) North Central Section award for Distinguished University Teaching of Mathematics. John Zobitz, mathematician at Augsburg College, nominated Kaus for this award.

The Distinguished University Teaching of Mathematics award is based on the following criteria:

  • Be widely recognized as extraordinarily successful in their teaching.
  • Have teaching effectiveness that can be documented.
  • Have had influence in their teaching beyond their own institution.
  • Foster curiosity and generate excitement about mathematics in their students

Cindy received her award at the Spring 2017 Meeting on April 21-22 at Anoka-Ramsey Community College. In addition, the North Central Section will forward Kaus' name as a nominee for the national award.
