Tom Hull's Home Page

Hi! Welcome to my web page. I finished my Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Rhode Island in 1997. My dissertation was on list coloring bipartite graphs, but now I mostly study the mathematics of origami (paper folding).

I'm currently an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Western New England University in Springfield, MA.

I regularly teach in Western New England's Master of Arts in Mathematics for Teachers (MAMT) program. If you are a middle- or high-school math teacher in the Pioneer Valley area of Massachusetts, you should definitely check us out!

     In the Spring 2019 semester I am teaching
           MATH 371 Modern Aspects of Geometry, MWF 12:00-12:50pm
           MATH 421 Real Analysis, MWF 1:00pm-1:50pm
      And for the 11-week Winter 2019 graduate term:
           MAMT 574 Origami in Mathematics and Education, MW 4:00-5:50pm

     For the Fall 2019 semester I will be teaching
           MATH 235-03 Calculus III, TThr 2:00pm-3:20pm
           MATH 378-01 Combinatorics, TThr 11:00am-12:20pm
      And for the 11-week Fall 2019 graduate term:
           MAMT 543-41 Linear Algebra, MW 6:00-7:50pm

     Please Email me if you have any questions about, well, anything!    

Unpaid ad: My book, Project Origami: activities for exploring mathematics. (publisher's website, cover and TOC) has came out in a second edition! AND it has also been translated into Japanese and Chinese!

There are a lot of things on this site. As it's grown they've gotten all inter-mingled and some of the links go in circles. Below is a list of the main things here, but feel free to explore!

Thanks for visiting! If you have any comments, suggestions or questions, please email me:
