Scott Stevens is a Professor of Mathematics and Dean of the Division of Information Technology and Science at Champlain College. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Vermont in 1999 in Applied Mathematics. He spent two years at The University of Montana and five years at Penn State University. He came to Champlain College in 2007. He has authored numerous research articles. Most of these involve the mathematical modeling of biomedical fluid dynamics pertaining to intracranial fluid flow and pressure. He has also authored two textbooks. The first is a combination textbook/workbook titled Introduction to Statistics, Think & Do. The second book was written for a course he developed at Champlain College titled Matrices, Vectors, and 3D Math, A Game Programming Approach with MATLAB. When he’s not working, there’s a good chance he’s hanging out with his family, swimming, or wading the rivers and streams of Vermont tangled in fly-fishing line.

Publications & Abstracts

Publications & Abstracts

Recommended Reading, Listening & Viewing

  • Nate Silver: The Signal and The Noise: Why so many predications fail – but some don’t. A great book on the art/science of making predictions and why we get it wrong so often.
  • Yuval Noah Harari: A Brief History of Humankind. A fascinating and surprisingly comprehensive history of Homo sapiens and the characteristics that make humans – human.
  • Malcolm Gladwell: Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about People We Don’t Know. I recommend the audiobook. It’s all about what we get right and what we get wrong when interacting with people we don’t know.
  • Daniel Kahneman: Thinking Fast and Slow. Setting the stage for behavioral economics and the concept of rational decisions, this book examines the contrasting forces within the human mind—immediate, instinctual reactions versus calculated, reasoned thoughts—and how they influence our behavior, judgment, and decisions in profound ways.
