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.

Current courses: Autumn 2018

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

A pendulum, a spring, a diffyQ! Elem. Differential Eqns. Linear, separable, autonomous DEs, intro to Differential Operators, for the bright, motivated, hard-working student. Time permitting, we'll introduce the Matrix Exponential as a way of solving interconnected linear DEs.

Recent courses: Summer-B 2018

We may use more advanced computing devices... Number Theory 1, of Summer-B 2018. Modular arithmetic, Chinese Remainder Thm, Legendre/ Jacobi symbols, Quadratic reciprocity, Fermat's SoTS thm, Lagrange 4-square thm, overview of Multiplicative Fncs.

Past courses: Spring 2018

Permutations & combinations Combinatorics II:

Continuing with Graph Theory, proceeding to Generating-Functions, followed by some more advanced material. Depending on student interest, we may cover some Combinatorial Game Theory.

A pendulum, a spring, a diffyQ! Elem. Differential Eqns. Linear, separable, autonomous DEs, differential operators, for the bright, motivated, hard-working student. Possibly, the Matrix Exponential method for solving interconnected linear DEs.

Courses from the Hoary Past All courses, with Notes, Exams and Links.

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.]
