Spencer Hamblen Department Chair

I have been fascinated by mathematical puzzles for as long as I can remember (How can you cut a bagel into 13 pieces using only 3 cuts)? I supervise McDaniel's teams in various mathematics competitions, and lead trips to regional and national conferences every year to show students the wider world of mathematics.
