Biography

Alicia Sevilla has taught at Moravian College since 1984, and served as Department Chair for the period 1998-2004. Recently she has regularly taught Quantitative Reasoning, Calculus with Review, and Calculus I, II and III, Discrete Mathematics, Linear Algebra, and Modern Algebra. She has also taught Advanced Calculus, Complex Variables, Higher Geometry, Mathematics for Elementary Teaching, Number Theory and Cryptography. She has also supervised student teachers, has advised Honors students and SOAR research projects.

She participated in two FIPSE funded projects that resulted in the implementation and dissemination of courses that integrate calculus with precalculus review. More recently, she participated in a project funded by the National Science Foundation that lead to the creation of a new course on quantitative reasoning.  Dr. Sevilla is a co-author of the textbooks A Companion to Calculus (1995, 2006) and Quantitative Reasoning: Tools for Today’s Informed Citizen (2007).  She is a member of the MAA/EPaDel Section and served as the Section Coordinator of Student Chapters from 1999 to 2006.
