Durham Intermediate School, Southlake, TX         Sixth Grade Mathematics


Who is Mr. Mangham?
I am a sixth grade math teacher at Durham Intermediate School in Southlake, TX. I am currently in my 17th year of teaching mathematics. I received my undergraduate degree from Duke University in electrical engineering and worked for nine years with GTE/Verizon in Irving, TX. Returning to school at the University of North Texas, I received both my teacher's certification (elementary education, mathematics) and master's degree (gifted and talented). I was the 2003 Teacher of the Year at Caroll Intermediate School, the 2012 Teacher of the Year at Durham Intermediate School, and the 2012 K-6 Teacher of the Year for Carroll ISD.

What is the goal of this website?
The website serves as a focal point for my math classes as it includes many of materials we use throughout the school year. Additionally, it provides many resources that teachers and students may be able to use in other math classes.

What is my philosophy of teaching?
I want math to be real-world and project-based. Many of the math topics we study have been incorporated in project-based learning units.

What are my interests other than teaching?
I enjoy traveling and was a leader for the People to People Student Ambassador Program for nine years. My delegations visited Hawaii, western Canada, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Greece, Italy, and Australia. The last two summers I have traveled to the Galapagos Islands to photograph the diverse wildlife. I also enjoy visiting zoos and taking photos of all of the animals. You can see my favorite travel pictures, favorite animal pictures, as well as my class pictures from my homepage. Finally, all love all kinds of music!
