# Teaching

I taught undergraduate mathematics until 2014 at various universities.

Teaching Resources lists a bunch of math and teaching resources that have caught my eye.

# Brigham Young University

As a graduate student in mathematics at Brigham Young University (2001-2007), I often taught one course each semester. Here are a few of the courses I taught.

- Quantitative Reasoning, Winter 2007
- College Algebra
- Fall 2006 (Large lecture). I lectured 6 combined sections and supervised 2 undergraduate teaching assistants. The course used the MyMathLab software and the homework and quizzes were all done online.
- Winter 2006

- Calculus I
- Winter 2003
- Fall 2003
- Fall 2004

- Business Calculus, Fall 2005
- Linear Algebra, Spring 2006

I was a teaching assistant for the following courses. Typically, I was over several sections and taught recitation lectures, graded homework and tests, and held regular office hours.

- BYU Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), Summer 2006. This was an NSF-funded summer research program for undergraduates covering geometric minimization. I worked closely with a few students in developing some research software, including a Mathematica program that calculated a Steiner tree on a sphere. I also maintained the REU website and supervised and participated in extra-curricular activities.
- Graduate student teaching seminar, 2006. This is an ongoing seminar for new graduate students that meets twice a month. After participating in the seminar for a year, I was asked to help run the seminar. I have led seminar discussions and helped video record participants giving a practice lecture.
- Undergraduate Abstract Algebra, Winter 2005.
- Calculus I, Fall 2002.
- Business Calculus, Winter 2002.
- College Algebra, Fall 2001.
