Richard Walsh

Research Interests

My main research interest is support tutoring in tertiary level mathematics. I am also interested in teaching at secondary level, particularly the teaching of trigonometry, levels of mathematical content knowledge for teaching, and the preparation of pre-service second-level mathematics teachers for teaching.

Teaching Interests

My main teaching interests are in mathematics support, mature student access mathematics and undergraduate service mathematics.
