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.
