    At UCR, I often teach Math 210A, Complex Analysis

Undergraduate Education
  • Beyond classroom teaching, I am interested in producing short videos to assist students in learning to extract mathematical statements in a scientific context (i.e. to assist the students to learn to do so-called “word problems”). For some of our products, please note my project “Mirco-Tutorials in Calculus” in the following website.

California Mathematics Projects
  • I am also interested in K-12 outreach, in particular in providing in-service training to K-12 teachers. I served as PI and Director for a California Mathematics Project at UC Riverside from 1999 to 2005. Starting in 2006, I serve as a University of California representative on the Advisory Board of the California Mathematics Projects.
