BA, MS, University of Mississippi
Tracy Sullivan started teaching at Millsaps in the fall of 1993. She enjoys teaching a wide variety of courses at the introductory and immediate level, especially courses in the calculus sequence. Ms. Sullivan is very active in investigating ways technology can be used to enhance students’ understanding of mathematics. Examples of technology and multimedia she regularly uses in her courses include graphing calculators, mathematical software, 3D plotting websites, short videos, and podcasts.
Recently, Tracy was involved in redesigning the department’s introductory level Statistics course to shift the course away from being a calculation driven course to a more concept and activity driven course which makes use of current technology and allows students to spend more time on understanding statistical concepts and interpreting the results of statistical tests.
In her free time, Tracy enjoys following sports and traveling to places with beautiful hiking trails.
