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?

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


Possible future courses: Spring 2023
If there is sufficient student interest, I hope to run the following Special Topics course. The link below is the Spring 2019 webpage, showing some of the material covered:
We may use more advanced computing devices... Number Theory & Mathematical Cryptography.

This Special Topics course is initiated by Student request. If you are interested, contact either me or the Math.dept Undergraduate Coordinator, Prof. Konstantina Christodoulopoulou (“Dr. C”) at kchristod@ufl.edu or (by appt.) in Lit370.

NT&Math-Crypto counts as an Upper-division math-elective. It an introduction to coding theory in general, and Mathematical Cryptography in particular. It covers some data-compression codes and, at student request, elementary error-correction codes.

Prerequisite is either Sets and Logic or permission of the professor.



Current courses: Autumn 2022

A Venn diagram Sets and Logic, 2022Autumn.
Guides students on how to read/produce proofs, learning some of the language of modern Mathematics. My section will focus on problem-solving; both Putnam and USAMO problems will be used as examples.

Groups, rings, fields. Abstract Algebra 1 . An introduction to Groups, primarily, with some discussion of Rings and Fields. This is for the motivated hard-working ambitious student who likes structures, games, puzzles ...and Thinking in general.

Recent courses: Spring 2022
A Venn diagram Sets & Logic. Guides students on how to read/produce proofs, learning some of the language of modern Mathematics. My section will focus on problem-solving; both Putnam and USAMO problems will be used as examples. Both Induction and the Pigeon-hole Principle (a counting argument) will be introduced early in the semester.

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

LOR LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION

Should you wish a letter of recommendation (LOR) from me, please review my LOR requirements. [Image: Updated] [Tuesday, 24Aug2021]

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. [Image: Updated] [Tuesday, 24Aug2021]
