Often in office:


As a teacher I have two goals: to help my students develop specific mathematical knowledge, and to help them become clear and effective writers and thinkers. Math is a language as well as a body of facts, and the ability to make convincing and easily-understood arguments is more important than any specific theorem or technique I might cover in class. If you’d like more information about my thoughts on teaching, you can read my teaching statement or just look at some of the material below from classes I’ve taught.

I have made a flowchart of the prerequisite chains of Occidental’s math classes. You can download it in PDF or in PNG. Note that this is completely unofficial and it is your responsibility to check that the information contained here is correct.

Current Teaching:

I am currently (Spring 2019) teaching Math 300: Junior Colloquium, Math 214: Linear Algebra, and Math 114: Calculus I (Experienced).

Office Hours:

My office hours are 12:15-1:45 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. My office is in Fowler 325. Please drop by if you’d like to talk to me for any reason.

I am often in my office at other times as well. You can see my availability on the sidebar.
