Scot Childress

I earned my B.A. in Pure Mathematics from California State University of Fullerton in 2003.  I earned my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California at Riverside in 2009 and served two post-doctoral study positions at UCR working with the Fractal Geometry and Dynamical  Systems Research Group (under M. Lapidus) from 2009 to 2012.

I started at Mt SAC as a part time Mathematics instructor in 2012 and was hired as a full-time professor in 2014.  I have always loved teaching and was so passionate about it that I left a research career to pursue it.  I enjoy teaching every level of class that we offer at Mt SAC from Math 50 up to 285.  Our students here are the best and I genuinely feel that I have the best job on the planet.
