Tony Record is entering his 29th year of teaching -- all at Avon High School. His main focus has been on Calculus for the past 24 years, and in particular Advanced Placement Calculus since 1999. While at AHS, Tony has played a pivotal role in developing the Discrete Mathematics and SAT Prep curriculum that has been taught in the school.In 2010, Tony was named Teacher of the Year for both Avon High School and the Avon Community School Corporation. Recently, Tony was named a finalist for the 2011 Indiana State Teacher of the Year Award and during the 2011-2012 school year was honored to be named an Indiana University Armstrong Educator Fellow. Mr. Record's students were recently crowned the I.U.P.U.I. Mathematics Contest State Champions for the second consecutive year in April 2014. In the Spring of 2015, AHS's AP Calculus class was crowned National Co-Champions of the Continental Mathematics League - Calculus Division and repeated that feat in both 2016 and 2017.Tony is an avid proponent of using technology in the classroom to assist instruction and is proficient with both Smartboard and Texas Instruments TI-Nspire graphing calculator technology and is passionate about sharing this love of technology integration to teachers all over the country. Tony is finishing up his certification to be a Regional T^3 Instructor with Texas Instruments and has just been accepted as a certified College Board Workshop Consultant. He is also a reader for the AP Calculus Exam. Additionally, he has done some freelance work for Baltimore, MD based Words & Numbers writing and updating calculator activities for the Texas Instruments line of graphing calculators and is a contributor to the Chicago-based "Get-A-Five" and "Albert.io" (formerly "Learnerator.com" now "albertio.com") web sites which provide on-line preparation for students taking Advanced Placement exams as well as college entrance exams across the globe. For the past year, Tony was contracted by KIPP National Charler Schools to author their AP Calculus curriculum.One of the things Tony enjoys most is the opportunity to travel not only the state of Indiana but to other schools in other states and work with AP Calculus teachers and students as part of the National Math & Science Initiative AP TIP (Advanced Placement Teacher Incentive Program) program. Tony is also a nationally certified Teacher Trainer in NMSI's innovative Laying the Foundation curricula as well its Advanced Placement Calculus training and conducts teacher workshops in school corporations nationwide.In January of 2016, Tony was awarded a Lilly Creativity Grant which will allow him to travel to Europe to investigate the origins of calculus during the Summer of 2016. His plans are to visit London, England to research the life of Sir Isaac Newton and then to Paris, France to investigate German mathematician, Wilhelm Gottfried Leibniz's contributions to calculus in the late 1660's during his visit to the city.
Tony lives in Avon with his wife, Dolores, and son, Braeden (15) and daughter, Makayla (13). When he's away from the classroom, he enjoys spending time with his children, playing tennis, watching The Big Bang Theory, playing the guitar and performing with the Hendricks Civic Theatre.Recent Talks

While I no longer utilize this website with my students, I will continue to maintain it somewhat so that teachers and students everywhere can access content from it. I am grateful for everyone's positive comments regarding how helpful they've found my materials. When teachers across the country work and share with one another amazing things can happen.
