Rob Newton is a mathematics instructor at the Trinity School, where each year he teaches a course on advanced topics that lie beyond a traditional high school curriculum. Recent courses have included algebraic number theory, combinatorics, linear algebra, group theory, and cryptography, each with a significant coding component. Rob grew up in a military family, moving from California to Texas to Germany to New York during his childhood. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from SUNY Potsdam and a PhD from the University of Florida, where his research analyzed a topological invariant that nobody can pronounce (and where he took advantage of the beautiful weather and beaches). Rob is an avid homebrewer and loves fruity herbal tea—experience he used as the adviser of the tea club at Trinity.
