Teaching

In Fall 2021, I will teach Calculus III (MATH 2440) and Business Precalculus (MATH 1324) -- both courses will be taught online.

In Spring 2021, I taught our Proofs class (MATH 3300). We used the freely available, good resource Book of Proof by Richard Hammack. I taught the course online, which meant that I could not schedule regular class meetings. This was and is a major downside to teaching online. For more on this, see my reflections on our Proofs Class.

In Spring 2020, I was awarded an Engaged Learning Fellowship. Through this two year support, I will continue making improvements to the active learning environment in the classroom. But just as important as the details of how to make a classroom engaging, if not more, educators need to provide a space that is safe and welcoming to all students. I will be adopting Prof. Federico Ardila-Mantilla's Axioms:

  • Axiom 1. Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

  • Axiom 2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

  • Axiom 3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

  • Axiom 4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
