Addie Armstrong earned her BS from Norwich and her MS and PhD from the University of Rhode Island.
At Norwich, Armstrong teaches math courses at every level and enjoys talking with students about the field.
Her current research involves aspects of graph theory, a field of mathematics also called networks. Armstrong’s work specifically focused on graph coloring, Ramsey theory, graph labeling, and games played on graphs. The latter two problem types are especially inviting to undergraduates interested in conducting research.
Armstrong serves on various committees in the Department of Mathematics at Norwich and assists in the administration of the Putnam Exam at Norwich, a competitive mathematics exam given every December throughout the United States and Canada. The competition allows students who enjoy puzzles to test themselves with challenging mathematics problems while offering a chance to earn international recognition.
Off campus, Armstrong is usually found writing, reading, hiking, skating, visiting the range, or enjoying the outdoors.
