Here are other classes that I particularly enjoy teaching because
they are more directly related with my research interests:
MATH 114 Convex Geometry
MATH 115A "Theory of Numbers" .
MATH 115B "Theory of Numbers" .
MATH 128C "Numerical Differential Equations''.
MATH 145 Combinatorics
MATH 146 "Algebraic Combinatorics''.
MATH 160 Mathematics for Data Mining and Decision Making
MATH 165 "Math and Computers" .
MATH 167 Applied Linear Algebra
MATH 168 "Mathematical Optimization''.
MATH 189 Advanced Problem Solving: Capstone
MATH 250 "Algebra" .
MATH 245 "Enumerative Combinatorics" .
MATH 246 Algebraic & Geometric Combinatorics
Every two years or so I try to teach a graduate class (as Topics class
MATH 280) on my current research interests.
Here is the last two I taught:
MATH 280 "Algebraic and Geometric
Methods in Optimization''.
MATH 280 Geometric and Topological Tools in Game Theory and Optimization
Sometimes when I teach a class students feel artistic and attempt to portray me.
Doing a senior thesis is a nice experience. You get to use all you have learned in college in a single project and research gives you a taste of graduate school. Topics are very diverse. You can see a list of all honors senior thesis, since 2008. If your GPA is good, you should consider doing research to graduate with honors!
At UC Davis alone Prof. De Loera has supervised for the work of many undergraduates (those that went to graduate school marked with schools names, * means wrote a paper or a senior thesis).
