# Teaching Overview

I regularly teach courses at all undergraduate levels. Besides communicating the material specific to the course, I always aim to explain how the course fits into mathematics as a whole. I insist that students be able to do specific problems and work out their own examples, as these are essential stepping stones to higher theoretical understanding. Similarly, I emphasize good mathematical writing as an essential part of the material be learned. I model a positive enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics, and emphasize the important role mathematics plays in the modern world.

Some of the courses I have taught at UMM are Precalculus I and II, Survey of Calculus, Calculus I and II, Mathematical Perspectives, History of Mathematics, Game Theory, Abstract Algebra I and II, and Number Theory. I also supervise several students in their senior seminars per year. All offerings of my number theory course and about half the senior seminars make contact with my research.

## Current Courses

This fall I am teaching History of Mathematics, Real Analysis I, and PreCalculus II: Trigonometry.

## Past Courses

A list of courses taught since 1986.

## Senior Seminars

A list of senior seminars supervised since 1999.
