• Courses Fall 2017

  • FSEM 1111-24 Mathematics Through Fiction

    An exploration of mathematical topics as they arise in mathematical fiction. Topics such as counting, infinity, number theory, sequences, topology, and the geometry of 2, 3, and higher dimensions will be studied. Students will read literature that introduces mathematical ideas, learn about the associated mathematics, and create works of mathematical fiction. The course closed with a Mathematical Fiction Reception celebrating student writing as well as the literature we read.

    See a write-up on my 2010 offering of the course at DU Today, the DU magazine/internet blog:

  • MATH 1200 Calculus for Business and Social Sciences

    Lecture Format; new version of the course meets two days/week for 2 hours with extended calculus topics (differentiation and integration) and projects/group work included.

  • Courses Summer 2017

  • MATH 1951 Calculus I: Differentiation

    First quarter differential calculus for science, engineering, and mathematics majors and minors.Covers limits, continuity, differentiation of functions of one variable, and applications of the derivative. This course counts toward the Analytical Inquiry: The Natural and Physical World requirement.

    We are using James Stewart's Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 7e with WebAssign in this course.

  • Courses Winter/Spring 2017

  • MATH 1200 Calculus for Business and Social Sciences (Hybrid Sections)

    This course teaches differential calculus concepts (without trigonometry) with an eye to their real-world applications and interpretations, and is the appropriate AI-N calculus class for students majoring in business and the social sciences. Topics include limits, differential calculus of one variable, including exponential and logarithmic functions, and applications of calculus to business and the social sciences. This section will be offered in Combined/Hybrid format which uses online video content prior to class meetings to offer a reduced class size (30 students) and a more active learning environment, meeting face-to-face three days/week.

  • MATH 1150-01 Graph Theory in the Real World (Hybrid Section)

    During this course, we will study the concepts and results of graph theory, how to solve problems related to graphs, and how solving graph theory problems helps us understand real world problems: scheduling, map coloring, postal delivery routes, amicable seating charts, population life cycle analysis, DNA sequencing, and more. This is a hybrid course, meaning that some of the course meetings are face-to-face (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday), while in between face-to-face meetings, students engage with course content, complete assignments, and communicate with classmates and the instructor through our online course container on the Canvas learning management system.  This course satisfies the DU Common Curriculum AI-N requirement.

    Lecture format section, meeting 4 hours/week in lecture and 1 hour/week in recitation with a TA.

  • FSEM 1111-24 Mathematics Through Fiction

  • Summer 2016

  • MATH 1951 Calculus I

    Differential Calculus for science, engineering, and mathematics majors.

  • Courses Spring 2016

  • MATH 2070 Introduction to Differential Equations

    This course covers the topic of differential equations, which are
    mathematical statements of equality relating a function (of one
    variable, conventionally representing time) to its derivative (or first
    and second derivatives). During this course, we will study first order
    differential equations and systems of differential equations, with an
    eye to qualitative, analytic, and numeric methods of solution and
    analysis.

    Course material is available through Canvas.
