TEACHING

During Winter quarter 2017 I will teach:

MATH 189 Advanced Problem Solving: Capstone

MATH 17C Calculus for Biological Sciences

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 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 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.
