Join Temple Mount Sinai for meaningful and engaging discussions examining the links between Judaism in mathematics, as part of its Scientists in Synagogues series, “Higher Meanings: Connecting Religion and Mathematics.” No expertise needed to explore many angles in both realms.
Mathematics is built on axioms — statements that we assume to be true. Similarly, our underlying assumptions about the world and about God affect the lives we build.
An undergraduate math and English major, Dr. Kim Regnier Jongerius earned her PhD from Colorado State University a long, long time ago. She has maintained her interest in language (claiming, in fact, that mathematics is itself a language) and has pursued that interest, writing “Rules and Insights: Connecting the Mathematical and Linguistic Abilities of C.S. Lewis,” exploring connections between the languages of mathematics and faith by co-authoring chapters on dimension, infinity, and proof in Mathematics through the Eyes of Faith; and developing a cross-disciplinary honors course, “Pattern and Structure: Mathematics in Literature.” She is a Professor of Mathematics at Northwestern College, a Christian liberal arts college, and she has been involved in her church as a small group leader, deacon, and member of the leadership team. Kim has also long been active in the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences, including terms as ACMS board secretary, VP, and president. She lives in Orange City, Iowa with her husband and two cats and has two adult children, a son-in-law, and a grandchild on the way.
