I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Colorado State University, and I have a wide range of teaching experiences from elite liberal arts colleges to research universities.
I have had considerable teaching experience in a wide variety of undergraduate mathematics and statistics courses at numerous colleges, including courses such as Calculus I-III, Pre-Calculus, College Algebra, Geometry, Differential Equations, Elementary Statistics, Biostatistics, Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Introduction to Abstract Mathematics, Real Analysis and Linear Algebra.
I was greatly honored to receive a 2009 Colorado State University Best Teacher Award presented by the Colorado State University Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Connection, a campus-wide award. I was also proud to be awarded the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award from the Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University for the 2006-2007 academic year. The following year (2008-2009), I was appointed to serve as a graduate teaching assistant mentor to several first-year graduate teaching assistants.
I love teaching mathematics and deeply enjoy the interaction with my students. Effective teaching involves more than a mastery of the subject matter, and showing students genuine enthusiasm: I believe all classes should engage students. The classroom should be a collaborative environment where students are active participants not just passive note-takers.
I taught finite mathematics numerous times at several colleges. I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Colorado State University.
I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Colorado State University. I also taught linear algebra several times at several colleges.
The course contents included selected topics from matrix theory and finite dimensional vector spaces. In particular, the idea of matrix representations with respect to a basis was a main component of this course.
I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Colorado State University. I also taught foundation of mathematics (mathematical logic) numerous times at several colleges. The general goal is to learn how to differentiate good from bad arguments. The approach is two-sided: (1) the analysis and classification of fallacies and (2) the analysis as well as the construction of valid arguments.
