Dr. Lim is a mathematics educator in the Department of Mathematics at UTEP. His research interests include mathematical habits of mind, impulsive-analytic disposition, proportional and algebraic reasoning, mindfulness, and kindness. To address students' habits of mind in learning math, Dr. Lim examines methods to provoke intellectual needs for learning math concepts, to empower students to think mathematically, to enact a nurturing learning environment, and to enhance their attitude towards math and towards life in general. Realizing that he needs to work within to accomplish these goals, he started conducting a self-study on becoming a caring educator.
