Here are some teaching resources from classes I have taught:
- My Summer 2010
Math 53: Differential equations and linear algebra
(Most of the course resources were made available through CourseWork.)
- My Fall 2009, Math 42 : integration, sequences and series
is available, though most of the
course information was made available through Coursework.
- The Math 53 pages from Fall 2008 and Fall 2007 are also here:
and Fall '08.
Here are two clips from a lecture that the
Center for Teaching and Learning
- A 4 minute clip on partial fractions [AVI]
- A 3.5 minute clip on Simpson's rule [AVI] [MOV]
In addition to my regular teaching, I
I was also involved with the Stanford Math Circle in 2009. I also supervised a summer undergraduate
research student in Summer 2007.
Introductory ODE with Linear Algebra
I taught this class several times at Stanford. When I did, I was responsible
for setting the exact syllabus, including the details of the assessment method.
The last time I taught this class, I had the students prepare end of term
projects. This was a great success, especially since this allowed the
students to explore topics that combined ODE with some of their particular
interests. (When I did this, a number of students found very interesting
applications to economic and financial models, teaching me a lot in the process!)
I taught this class in Fall quarter, 2009. The class was primarily focused
on methods of integration, with a small section on sequences and series.
Most of the students were in their first term at Stanford,
and were placed into my
class by a good AP score. My most famous student was football star
He even earned me a mention
(alas, not by name)
in the New York Times (fifth paragraph from the end).
I co-taught this class with Eric Bahuaud
, summer of 2009. This class is offered by
the Engineering office of student and diversity affairs to help those
who want to participate, prepare for their first year of studies at Stanford.
Calcul différentiel et intégral
Université de Montréal
A second calculus class, focused on integration techniques, with a small
section on sequences and series. Class taught in French.
Université de Montréal
Introduction to smooth manifolds. Masters level class. We mostly followed
Spivak's differential geometry classic, though I also spent a little bit
of time on de Rham cohomology and had the students complete some projects
related to Morse theory.
I taught this undergraduate class at NYU for two semesters. The students
were mostly 3rd and 4th year computer science students, though I did have
a couple of math majors also take my class. This was an introduction to
combinatorics with a focus on counting problems and graph theory.
For many of the students, it was also a first exposure to non-trivial proofs.
As a PhD student, I also TA'ed for a number of classes, notably
business calculus, quantitative reasoning and the graduate level ODE class.
