BOB BLITZER is a native of Manhattan and received a Bachelor of Arts degree with dual majors in mathematics and psychology (minor: English literature) from the City College of New York.

Bob is most energized by teaching mathematics and has taught a variety of mathematics courses at Miami-Dade Community College for nearly 30 years. He has received numerous teaching awards, including Innovator of the Year from the League for Innovations in the Community College, and was among the first group of recipients at Miami-Dade for an endowed chair based on excellence in the classroom. In addition to Thinking Mathematically, Bob has written four algebra books, all published by Prentice Hall.
