Current Schedule and Office Hours
Friday: 11-12, 2-3
You can also make an appointment with me outside my regular hours if needed. As I am on many committees it is not unusual for me to have to miss on occasional office hour to go to a meeting. If possible I will announce this in class, and will typically have a note on my door with the (approximate) time the meeting will end.
In addition for my Abstract Algebra class I have “tutorials”, where students meet with me once a week in groups to go over homework problems. I have tutorials Tuesday 11:15-12:15, Wednesday 8-9 and 11-12, and Thursday from 11-12 and 3-4.
My Fall 2018 classes are:
MATH 1513.1 – College Algebra. This meets MWF from 9:00-9:50 in MTH 217.
MATH 2003.1 – Technology for Mathematics. This meets MWF from 1:00-1:50 in MTH 104
MATH 2013.1 – Discrete Mathematics. This meets TTh from 9:30-10:45 in MTH 115
MATH 4233.1 – Abstract Algebra. This meets MWF from 12:00-12:50 in MTH 115
Analytic Geometry with Mathematica – new (free) textbook!
Dr. Layne Heitz and I have written a textbook for Analytic Geometry as a sequence of Mathematica notebooks. This text is available as a free download – you can get the notebooks here. Please note that minor updates were made to the text between the Fall 17 and Spring 18 semesters. As of 1/21/2018, full solution manuals have posted for the homework.
To see my Mathematica notebook library, follow this link. These notebooks have lots of manipulations in them that illustrate various mathematical ideas. They’re grouped by general topic (algebra, etc.) and you can download the files from Google Drive.
