Teaching

In the Fall 2017 semester I am teaching MATH 2110: Multivariable & Vector Calculus. The course information can be found on the common course webpage.

Visuals

I think that visual aids are one important tool available to mathematics instructors, and that the best visual aids are usually those that can be manipulated or interacted with.

In collaboration with Amit Savkar, I develop interactive visualizations of calculus concepts and examples. These visualizations are used for calculus teaching and learning at the University of Connecticut. You can find examples of my early work on Dr. Savkar's website. For more recent examples, contact me.
