Stanford Teaching

This semester, Fall 2022, I will be teaching Math 51, Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, and Modern Applications. Here is the Canvas course website.

University of Minnesota Teaching

Other Teaching

In Fall 2017, I taught a class to Minneapolis community members throught the Osher Lifetime Learning Institute (OLLI) titled "Math and Proofs". We learned about basic axioms, proofs, and talked about the limitations of axiomatic systems and what it means for mathematics.

Awards and Service

I was a reciprient of the University of Minnesota Mathematics Department 2018-19 Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award.

In 2021, I was a reader for an undergraduate Senior Honors Thesis.

In 2021, I was a counselor for the Mathematics Project at Minnesota (MPM), an annual four day workshop for undergraduates at the University of Minnesota who come from underrepresented groups in mathematics.

In 2020 and 2021, I was a facilitator for the teacher training portion of the new graduate student orientation.

From 2018-21, I was a mentor in the UMN Directed Reading Program.

Teaching Materials

Please feel free to use any of these materials. Some sort of attribution (oral or written) would be appreciated.

My Youtube Channel has all the lecture videos from my Spring 2021 "Excursions in Math" class, as well as some material from older classes.

Here is my College Algebra worksheet for pi day. Students approximate pi in three ways: using the sum-of-squares infinite series (analytic); cutting a circle into wedges, and recombining into a "parallelogram" (geometric); and Buffon's needle problem (probabilistic). The circle wedges method was surprisingly accurate; not so for Buffon's needle.

Here are my slides from the OLLI course referenced above.
