### This semester

This semester I am teaching Probability (STAT 51) and Combinatorics (MATH 69). If you are in these classes, please log in to Moodle for course information.

### Next semester

Next semester I will be teaching Modern Algebra (MATH 67) and Calculus II (MATH 25). If you are thinking of taking either of these classes, please come stop by and introduce yourself.

### Reading courses

If you are interested in doing a reading course with me, please send me an email detailing:

- the topic,
- the texts you will be reading (textbooks or research papers),
- a brief summary of why it is important that you study this topic instead of taking a regular class,
- and lastly why you think that I am the right professor to guide you through the material.

Once you have provided me with this information I will be able to assess whether I can mentor you through a reading course. Please be aware that I am not able to mentor reading courses some semesters due to other constraints.

### Letters of recommendation

If you are a current or former student who would like me to write you a letter of recommendation, please ask me as early as possible. In order for me to write you the best letter possible, you will need to provide me with

- a list of classes you have taken from me and the grades you earned
- highlights of your work from those classes, i.e. writing assignments, presentation problems, etc.
- a description of the program to which you are applying
- all materials, including a resume or c.v., a personal statement, or a proposal that you are submitting as part of your application
- all guidelines or information for letter writers
- specific attributes or accomplishments I should be sure to highlight in my letter.
