B.A., M.A. Leningrad State Pedagogical University

Scholarly Interests
Gifted education. Problem Solving. History of Mathematics Education.

Dr. Alexander P. Karp is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. He taught mathematics at middle and high schools for the mathematically talented for almost 20 years. He was the leader of the St. Petersburg Team at the Baltic Way International Mathematics Competition in 1990-1997.

Based on his work with students interested in mathematics, he has written two problem books for schools studying the advanced course of mathematics. In 1992-2000, he was involved in the reform of the system of Russian mathematics examinations (including the revision of their contents). As part of this work, he put together several problem books to facilitate conducting and preparing for mathematics examinations. He was chairman of the Mathematics Department of the St. Petersburg City Independent Examination and Assessment Board. Another important project was writing textbooks and problem books for students who are not interested in mathematics but wish to pursue studies in the humanities (in coauthorship with A. Werner).

Dr. Karp has also been involved in in-service and pre-service teacher education. He has taught a number of courses and workshops on teaching the mathematically gifted and on problem solving, and he has sponsored several dissertations exploring problem solving. He has authored several teachers' manuals.

Currently, he is very interested in the history of mathematics education, particularly in the history of mathematical problem solving.
