Biography: 

Jim Dunlevy earned his B.A. in Mathematics from the College of Steubenville (Ohio) and his M.S. degree in Mathematics from Arizona State University. He joined the faculty at Fairmont State in 1965. He pursued additional graduate coursework in algebra, specifically group theory, at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, from 1968-71, and returned to full-time teaching at Fairmont State in 1971. He teaches Probability and Statistics, Discrete Mathematics, Introduction to Logic, Calculus, College Algebra and Trigonometry and Elementary Functions.

What have you learned while teaching at Fairmont State?: 

I have come to the conclusion that the members of our teaching faculty are truly concerned and caring individuals. I say this because of faculty members who have gone out of their way to help students. Some have driven students to and from airports, some have, on a regular basis, taken international students to purchase groceries, and others have helped students by teaching a needed class, in addition to their regular load.

What do your students like best about your class?: 

Students express appreciation for the help I provide with problems, especially outside of class. They also like the way I try to encourage participation during class.
