Research Interests

Dr. Thomas Reid is interested in improving middle/high school mathematics teacher content knowledge. In Probability/Statistics, he is interested in fitting distributions to truncated samples using simulation and probability plots.

Research Experiences

From 2005-2012, He worked in partnership with the USCA School of Education and high needs districts to provide workshops that teach the use of technology in teaching algebra, geometry, and statistics. He continues to work with faculty in the School of Education and Ruth Patrick Science Education Center to enhance content knowledge to middle and high school teachers in Aiken, Allendale, and Barnwell counties. Currently he is working with a student to use simulation for finding probabilities associated with the game of Duplicate Bridge.
