Teaching is an opportunity to share the knowledge and expertise I have gained as an educator and a mathematician. Read more about my teaching philosophy and pedagogy on this page, and see a sample video of my teaching at the bottom of this page.
Teaching Statement: I believe greatly in the power of the language of mathematics, and I assert that all students can have a positive learning experience in a mathematics classroom. Read about how I strive to create this experience in my classes here.
Class Axioms: Students are individuals who come from diverse backgrounds and have different skill sets. At the beginning of each semester, my classes and I adopt an axiomatic system centered around learning for all students, and we agree on classroom expectations that help cultivate a classroom culture consistent with those axioms. Read them here.
Course Evaluations: You will see quantitative results for some semesters and student comments for all semesters in which I have been the instructor of record or recitation leader at NC State.
Sample Syllabus: This is the course syllabus for the Spring 2021 semester of MA 405: Introduction to Linear Algebra.
Sample Lecture Notes: These are instructor notes from a lesson on vector space isomorphisms in the Spring 2021 MA 405 course.
Sample Test: This is a test from my Distance Education Fall 2021 MA 405 course.
Courses Taught: This lists all courses that I have taught over the course of my career.
