Terry Trotter passed away in 2004, but the website he created has dozens of wonderful math lessons that should continue to be available on the internet for generations to come. A memorial page was added for him soon after his passing. You can also read as much of his life story as he was able to write. He was inspirational in many ways to me and his descendents. Enjoy!

What's New:
I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

-Isaac Newton, philosopher and mathematician (1642-1727)

     I am a retired math teacher. I worked for over 7 years in the U.S. before coming to live in El Salvador (1981) to work at the Escuela Americana in San Salvador.

     My main focus and experience has been at the upper elementary and middle school levels, but I have taught advanced secondary math courses as well.

     What I put on my webpage however is not your usual sort of "school math" topics, at least not presented in the same way. It contains, by and large, "Trotter Math". That is stuff that interests me in particular, and that has proved to be interesting to students that have been exposed to my style of lessons and activities.
