In the Fall 2015 term I am teaching:
MATH 401 This is the first semester of a graduate course in abstract algebra. We will be using a textbook entitled, "Algebra", byThomas Hungerford. If you have questions, you may contact me by e-mail. I check my mail regularly, so this is an excellent way to reach me, and I am always happy to hear from you.
In Spring 2016 I expect to teach:
MATH 302 - Department Seminar. a seminar devoted to understanding the formulation and solution of mathematical problems. We will study, from a mathematical as well as a historical viewpoint, how mathematics advances as a discipline--what mathematicians do. The course will largely be in a seminar format. We will be using the book, "Mathematics and Its History, ThirdEdition", by John Stillwell.
MATH 465 - Differential Geometry This course studies the geometry of curves and surfaces in Euclidean space: intrinsic and extrinsic geometry, curvature, structural equations of Riemannian geometry, and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem. Prerequisite: Math 321. We will be using the book, "Differential Geometry: Curves - Surfaces - Manifolds", by Wolfgang Kuhnel.
