Basic teaching

   Survey of Modern Algebra
MATH 461 D, Spring 2017 - Syllabus
PART I: GROUP THEORY. Some course notes - Homework 0- Homework 1- Homework 2 - Homework 3 - Homework 4
PART II: RING THEORY. Some course notes - a tentative studyguide - Homework 5 - Homework 6 - midterm preparation
PART III: FIELD EXTENSIONS. Some course notes - final preparation


Anybody can count: 0,1,2,3... so we all understand the natural numbers. But what about the other numbers? What is a fraction? What is a polynomial? Is there a fraction to express √5? And using only a ruler and a compass, what ``numbers'' can i construct from a segment of length one? (Can i construct a segment of length √5 ? What about ∛5 ?) Finally: What are the last two digits of 11986? This course will teach you an abstract approach that solves all of these questions. In addition, it allows you to understand vectors, matrices, and Rubik cube moves.

   Calculus II
MATH 162 G7, Spring 2017 - Syllabus - - Final Preparation

A course on integration techniques, infinite series, Taylor series. Among the things we will understand are:
- how to compute the length of a curve, or the area under it;
- Zeno's paradox in Greek philosophy;
- the meaning of ''exponential decay'' and how radiocarbon dating works.
