Don't just stand there, -Read Something!

Some of my students have rated me Actually...I don't wear a tie. and the comments, ahem, vary. (At least I rank better than Attila the Hun… -his teaching was terrible   -no wait, that was Ivan …) [Wikipedia discusses this phenomenon.]    Legitimate complaints?

For UF students there is free tutoring at the UF Teaching Center (see schedule). For a fee, some UFMath grad students tutor.

In all of my courses, attendance is absolutely required (excepting illness and religious holidays). All classes have a substantial class-participation grade.

Actually...I don't wear a tie. Past, Present and Future courses.

Future courses: Autumn 2017

Permutations & combinations Combinatorics I [currently linked to a previous incarnation] , with many methods of counting, enumeration, bijective proofs.

The 1st semester (Autumn) will progress up to Graph Theory.

The 2nd semester (Spring 2018) will start with Generating-Functions, continue with Graph Theory, and some more advanced material. Depending on student interest, we may cover some Combinatorial Game Theory.

The text is the fine book by Prof. Miklos Bona of UFMath.

A pendulum, a spring, a diffyQ! Elementary Differential Equations [currently linked to a previous version]. MAP2302  section 1G33  (8th period, LIT125): Beginning Differential Eqns for the bright, motivated, hard-working student.

Current courses: Spring 2017

Intro/Elem. Complex variables . How is complex differentiability connected to power-series expansion?

A Venn diagram Sets and Logic . Helps students to read and produce proofs, and learn the basic language of modern Mathematics.

[Was on sabbatical in Autumn 2016.]

Recent courses: Autumn 2015

Matrices, determinants, Gauss-Jordan algorithm (theoretical) Linear Algebra. Matrices, determinants, Gauss-Jordan algorithm, eigenvalues/vectors, matrix diagonalization, various matrix decompositions.

A pendulum, a spring, a diffyQ! Elementary Differential Equations MAP2302  section 5609 : Beginning differential eqns for the bright, motivated, hard-working student.

Past courses: Spring 2016

Matrices, determinants, Gauss-Jordan algorithm (theoretical) Linear Algebra. Matrices, determinants, Gauss-Jordan algorithm, eigenvalues/vectors, matrix diagonalization, various matrix decompositions.

We may use more advanced computing devices... Number Theory & Mathematical Cryptography .

This is a special topics course and is only offered once every 3 years or so. Also... NT&Math-Crypto counts as an Upper-division math-elective.

This course is an introduction to coding theory in general, and Mathematical Cryptography in particular. It does not assume a previous Number Theory course, only asking that the student do a bit of reading before the semester begins. (The webpage has a few suggestions.)

Should you wish a letter of recommendation (LOR) from me, I have certain LOR requirements. Although I prefer that you provide an LOR waiver form (obtained from University/firm/granting-agency that you are applying to), here is a generic LOR waiver (pdf).

Grades Grades

For course-grades I use
    A+  A  A-  . . . D+  D  D-  E+  E.
The Registrar rounds an A+ to an A, and E+ to an E, but I kept track of the higher grade when I write letters of recommendation for students. [NOTE: Although a D- is passing, certain University requirements need a minimum grade of C; students should check with their College or Department.]

Students should read my teaching/quiz policy. [N.B: At the end of each semester, I place graded final projects/exams in a wallbin outside my office door. The Integrated Student Information System (ISIS) gives each student access to his course-grade.]
