Teaching
Notes and Announcements

My office hours for the Fall 2017 semester are as follows:

If you would like to come talk to me, you are welcome to stop by during any of the listed times. I would also be happy to arrange an appointment via email.

Here is the current version of my Statement of Teaching Philosophy.

Here are some lecture notes from the last time that I taught abstract algebra. I am still hoping to further update them someday, but this is the most recent version.



Awards

In April 2017, I was honored to receive the inaugural Faculty Teaching Award from the UT Tyler Mathematics Department.

In November 2013, I was the recipient of the Kenneth P. Bogart Teaching Award, which is given out annually by the Dartmouth Mathematics Department. It is given to the graduate student entering their final year who best exemplifies outstanding dedication to and excellence in advancing the educational mission of the department.

In April 2012, I was recognized by the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL) as an "Outstanding Graduate Student Teacher from an Undergraduate Perspective" for my work in Math 1 (Calculus with Algebra).



Courses Taught

UT Tyler.
Starting with the Fall 2017 semester, all course documents can be found on Canvas. Previous courses were hosted on Blackboard, which is no longer active at UT Tyler.

Dartmouth College.

Summer 2013: Math 31 – Topics in Algebra.
This is an introductory course in abstract algebra. It generally covers basic group theory and some ring and field theory. Dartmouth students often encounter proofs for the first time here.

Summer 2012: Math 31 – Topics in Algebra. Fall 2011: Math 1 – Calculus with Algebra and Trigonometry.
This course provides an introduction to calculus for freshmen who may lack a solid background in algebra and trigonometry. It covers some concepts from precalculus (namely exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions), limits, continuity, and differential calculus. Integral calculus is covered the following term in Math 2. I co-taught this class with Seth Harris, so many of the course materials are joint work.
