Teaching

I have taught the following courses:

Physics 300, "Survey of Mathematical Physics", a course that bridges the under-division and upper-division undergraduate physics major courses, introducing key mathematical tools while emphasizing how to think about math like a physicist.

Astronomy 444, "Applications of Gravitation," a new course on applications of general relativity for advanced undergraduate students.

Physics 211, "Elementary Physics," an algebra-based introduction to mechanics and thermodynamics.

Physics 211L, "Elementary Physics Laboratory", the laboratory co-requisite to Physics 211.

Physics 520, "Analytical Mechanics," a master's-level course in classical mechanics and special relativity.

Physics 225, "Fundamental Physics," a calculus-based introduction to mechanics. I am piloting a revision of this course using a flipped classroom, supported in part by the CSU Sustaining Success and Proven Course Resdesign redesign programs.
