Bruce Baguley
Bruce Baguley
Bruce Baguley trained as a pure mathematician. He received his BA in Mathematics from Tulane University, went to MIT for one year, but was drafted in 1969. After serving in the Navy in Viet Nam, he returned to MIT where he received his MS in Mathematics. Bruce worked in and opened a greenhouse specializing in exotic plants, but the call of math proved too strong. He taught math at a community college, went back to school at Heritage College to obtain a teaching certificate, and taught math enrichment in the Wenatchee School District. Bruce obtained two patents for math teaching devices, founded Cascade Math Systems, LLC and has done nearly 40 workshops at regional, national, and international math conferences on using manipulatives and visual representations to show the basis of math concepts. In the last few years, Bruce has worked with Lou Schultz, PhD to develop “Visualizing Math”, a program to teach pre-service teachers the concepts behind the math they will be teaching their students.
