Mr. Brian Perryman

Born in San Fransisco and raised in Santa Clara I am a graduate of De Anza College (AA in Anthropology) and Humboldt State University (BA in Mathematics).  I have been teaching Mathematics at Mountain View High School since the 93-94 school year.  I've taugh everything from Algebra 1 to Calculus AB/AP.  Currently I teach Geometry Honors and Statistics.  My primary focus, regardless of the course taught, is fostering adept and creative problem solvers.  I want my students to see the power of Mathematics as one of several problem solving tools available to individuals with a well-rounded education.  "When am I ever going to use this?"  My reply, "Never if you don't learn it.  No one can predict the future so snap to and get busy.  You'll thank yourself later when you're able to choose freely between the forks in the road of life."
