**Currently teaching**

** Survey of Modern Algebra**

**MATH 461 P, Spring 2019**- Syllabus

*Anybody can count: 0,1,2,3... We all understand the natural numbers. But what about the other numbers? What is a fraction? What is a polynomial? Can we write √5 as a fraction? And why do we do geometry in the Cartesian plane RxR, aren't fractions and their roots enough? And many more questions: What are the last two digits of 1561201298*

^{6}? Why are 1/7, 2/7, 3/7, 4/7... all periodic, and why is the period always six digits long? This course will teach you an abstract approach that solves all of these questions. In addition, it allows you to understand better the world of vectors and matrices.** Metric Geometry**

**MATH 785 R, Fall 2018**- Syllabus

*The goal is to study together the theory of length metric spaces, and their connection with combinatorics.*
