Past teaching


Probability teaching

My handcrafted creations of probability problems

I taught the Honors version of MATH 3160 (to be renamed MATH 3165 in 2017) in Spring 2015 and Fall 2015.
For a history of Honors probability at UConn, see my report [pdf].

Tom Roby and I recorded Lightboard video lectures for MATH 3160 in Fall 2015, with the assistance of the Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning. UConn affiliates can access the video catalog using their NetIDs and passwords. If you are not a UConn affiliate and wish to access the videos, please contact me or Tom.


Actuarial advising

Since Fall 2016 I have served as the actuarial exam advisor for Colgate undergrads.
