Anthony Grabowski worked 20 years as a process engineer in the Semiconductor and Hard Drive Industries. Previous to coming to Kehillah this year Anthony taught Chemistry, Physics and AP Physics in Fairfax County, Northern Virginia as well as Math at Gunn High School in Palo Alto. He holds California Teaching Credentials in Physics, Math and Chemistry.
Anthony particularly enjoys mathematically modeling real work phenomena with his students. It is an interesting experience to look at “common” phenomena around us, and to ask a question like, “Why does a steel ball rolling in a groove travel slower than a identical ball that is not rolling in a groove”? Or, “Are the results of a seven game Baseball World Series statistically significant”? It is a thrilling, illuminating experience to create a mathematical model that gives answers to these questions.
Anthony received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan, an M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from San Jose State University.
