Dennis Williams has taught mathematics for over thirty years in Colorado and New Mexico. He has taught with the Farmington School District, located in the Four Corners region of northwestern New Mexico, for twenty-seven years.  He was the Mathematics Department Chair at Piedra Vista High School in Farmington the last fifteen years teaching AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB and BC up until his retirement in June 2013. He has worked as a consultant for the National Math and Science Initiative mentoring AP Statistics, Calculus AB and BC teachers and leading study sessions for students.  Currently he is a consultant with the College Board.

Mr. Williams has been involved with the College Board since the conception of AP Statistics course in 1997 and has taught AP Statistics Summer Institutes (new and experienced teachers) for the last twenty years.  He has also taught/presented at various one and two-day conferences emphasizing AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB/BC, Vertical Team Building, Problem Solving in Mathematics and Pre-AP Mathematics Middle/High School throughout the United States and Canada for the last twenty-three years.  He is a member of the American Statistical Association.

Dennis feels that AP Statistics is a class that all high school students are capable of completing and that it is an excellent venue through which more students can be exposed to the challenges of the Advanced Placement program and to possibly more advanced AP classes such as AP Calculus AB and BC.
