## Teaching

I enjoy working closely with students in a variety of math classes and helping them gain mathematical confidence and communication skills. In all of my classes, I make sure to include time for students to work with each other. In addition to my teaching experience, I was a part of the fully online Project NeXT cohort in 2020.### Davidson College

All courses at Davidson meet for 2.5 hours/week. Students are expected to put in significant time outside class, more similar to a four credit hour class. This time includes reading or watching videos to prepare for the next class, in addition to homework assignments and studying.**MAT 108**, Exploring Mathematical Ideas, Fall 2023

**MATH 2194**, Recreation Mathematics and Outreach, co-Instructor. [Syllabus]. Course that uses hands-on math actitivies to explore various topics that students are unlikely to have seen in a K-12 classroom. Students develope their own hands-on math activity for a K-12 audience and help run two existing BAMM activites.

**MATH 1118**, Mathematics for Architects, Autumn 2021, Instructor. [Syllabus]. Students work in groups to solve geometry problems related to architecture. They write-up their solutions as homework and a chance to revise their work based on feedback.

**MATH 4507**, Geometry, Autumn 2020, Instructor. [Syllabus]. Online, inquiry based learning with a modified mastery grading system. Students receive a grade of 1-3 on all problems, with the option to revise and resubmit their work.

**MATH 1152**, Calculus 2, Autumn 2019, Recitation Instructor, flipped and flexible [course website]Flipped and flexible calculus courses consist of online lectures and homeworks, and twice a week recitations with active learning worksheets

### University of Illinois

All calculus sections are groupwork-based active learning.

The Merit Scholars program focuses on retaining students from underrepresented minorities or rural schools, as well as those who have not declared a major and women in engineering. Discussion sections meet for two hours twice a week instead of the standard one hour. Teaching assistants create the group work assignments for these sections. Students receive a grade for their Merit section in addition to their lecture grade.

Courses at the Summer Illinois Math Camp focus on hands-on, discovery based learning and topics not typically covered in the K-12 curriculum. These courses are designed and taught by graduate students, with help from undergraduate assistant instructors who have taken a math Merit course.The graduate student instructors are also responsible for teaching the undergraduates the necessary math and for helping the undergraduates learn how to teach the campers.
