He has taught Mathematica courses and seminars throughout México, for which he developed more than 40 hours of Mathematica material in Spanish. He has been a certified instructor with Wolfram Research since 2007.
Gómez-Muñoz has been teaching mathematics and physics to engineering students since 1998. He is coauthor of two textbooks, Precálculo, enfoque de resolución de problemas and Cálculo diferencial para ingeniería. He works in the Principia Program, where mathematics, physics, and computer sciences are integrated for freshman and sophomore engineering students in a collaborative learning environment. Some of the educational materials he has developed in English and Spanish are available on the internet, including “The Murder Mystery Method Applied to Exact Differential Equations,” “The Simpsons and Mathematics 3,” and “A New Geometrical Explanation of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus,” among others.
