Edward W. Pitzer is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Mathematics at Marian University in Indianapolis, Indiana in the USA.
Professor Pitzer’s specialty is introductory courses in chemistry and mathematics for non-science and non-mathematics majors.
His present research interest is in the pedagogical construct of these non-major courses. He insists that making a non-science major excited about, or at least intrigued by, a science or mathematics course is a worthwhile effort.
Professor Pitzer has published works describing mathematical properties of organic molecules. Among these are his works describing topological constructs of organic molecules and a recent work on a general formulization of hydrocarbons. These types of works show both his predilection for chemistry and mathematics.
