Among David Perkins' favorite academic inventions are courses that link mathematics to other disciplines, for instance Advanced Logic, cotaught with two different philosophy professors, and Math & Programming, cotaught with a professional programmer. Perkins is the author of Calculus & Its Origins (2012) and phi, pi, e and i (2017), both published by Mathematical Association of America, Spectrum Series. Perkins enjoys doing research with undergraduates, most recently looking into the structure of a game (available on mobile devices) called KAMI, which can be modeled with colored graphs.
