Congratulations go to Professor Dan Margalit, who has been awarded the Geoffrey G. Eichholz Faculty Teaching Award.
This award was established in 2005 through a gift from School of Mechanical Engineering's Regents’ Professor Emeritus Geoffrey Eichholz. It was created to reward senior faculty members who made a long-term contribution to introductory undergraduate education and were outstanding teachers for students taking freshman and sophomore core courses. Recently, the award has broadened to recognize faculty at any point in their careers who excel in teaching core and general education courses, and who help students establish a solid foundation for their education at Georgia Tech.
In addition to his success as an effective and engaging instructor, Prof. Margalit is recognized for his leadership on MATH 1553 Intro. Linear Algebra over the years, including coauthoring the online interactive textbook Interactive Linear Algebra which is the course textbook for MATH 1553. Every semester, this course is taken by many GT students from several key majors, and thus plays an important role in their educational foundation.
