Malgorzata Dubiel

SFU Excellence in Teaching Award, 2002

Department of Mathematics
Faculty of Science


Dr. Malgorzata Dubiel received the 2002 SFU Excellence in Teaching Award. In 2008, Dr. Dubiel's teaching excellence was further recognized when she was awarded the 3M National Teaching Fellowship.

At 149 centimetres (4'10.5”) in height, Malgorzata Dubiel (left) often stands on her tip toes to fill a white board with equations that sometimes leave her students quaking in their seats. Yet, they call her a “giant in teaching” because of her unique ability to inject humour, meaning and even beauty into mind-boggling mathematics.
