## teaching

I am interested in teaching a variety of courses using a mix of active learning strategies, especially inquiry-based learning, peer instruction, and self reflection. I also work to encourage equity in the classroom. Course materials can be found on my GitHub page, in select course pages below, or in the documents section.

### University of Tennessee

**MATH509: Analysis for Teachers (FA18). **Development of differential and integral calculus, proofs of basic theorems. For students in the Master of Mathematics program.

**MATH460: Geometry (SP18). **Axiomatic and historical development of neutral, Euclidean, and hyperbolic geometry stressing proof technique and critical reasoning. Models of Non-Euclidean geometries.

**MATH119: College Algebra (FA18, SU18, SP18). **A review of algebraic functions, equations, and inequalities.

**MATH509: Seminar for Teachers (co-taught during SP18). **For students in the Master of Mathematics program.

### Coastal Carolina University

**Math 408: Cryptography (FA17, FA16) ***Cross-listed as CSCI408***. **This course introduces students to the fundamentals of cryptography and cryptanalysis, primarily focusing on data encryption and decryption. Topics will include: modular arithmetic, classical encryption schemes, modern encryption schemes, password security, and digital signatures, secret sharing. See this page for my escape-room-inspired activity!

**Math 407: Coding Theory (SP16) ***Cross-listed as CSCI407***. **This course covers the issues involved in designing efficient codes, including error detection/correction. Topics to be covered include distance, nearest neighbor decoding, hamming codes and linear codes.

**Math 174: Intro to Discrete Math (SP16). **Set theory, logic divisibility, induction, combinatorics, relations, functions, graphs, digraphs, and Boolean algebra.

**Math 160: Calculus I (FA17, SP17, FA16, SP16, FA15). **Limits, continuity, differentiation and integration of algebraic and transcendental functions, applications of the derivative to curve sketching, optimization and related rates.

### Colorado State University

**Math 366: Introduction to Abstract Algebra (SU14). **Sets, integers, polynomials, real and complex numbers, groups, integral domains, and fields; development of skills for proving theorems.

**Math 369: Linear Algebra (SU13). **Linear systems, matrices, subspaces of Euclidean spaces, linear transformations on Euclidean spaces, eigenvalues, eigenvectors.

**Math 340: Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations (SP15, SP14, SP13). **First and second order equations, series, Laplace transforms, linear algebra, eigenvalues, first order systems of equations, numerical techniques.

**Math 160: Calculus for Physical Scientists I (FA11). **Limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration of elementary functions with applications; conic sections.

## Course Evaluations:

### Student Comments

- "She always had the best interest of the students in mind. Her
**variety in different teaching styles**and methods definitely helped in many situations and**challenged us**in good ways." - "The examples were often
**creative**and integrated well into the lessons." - "I don't think I would have done this well or had the
**motivation to work**as hard if it wasn't for Anne." - "Probably the only math class that I actually liked to attend and
**genuinely wanted to learn**and not just do it to get a good grade. Changed my whole mindset on how I looked at calculus." - "
**Connects the course**to other major material (biology)." - "After sitting in on a few of Anne's Calc 3 classes with my roommate last semester, I actively sought to have her as my Diff Eq instructor. She is one of the
**best teachers**I've ever had, and certainly the single**most effective**math teacher to ever teach me [...] Furthermore she has a very**approachable**personality so it was actually fun - "Really can't say enough good things about Anne!
**Great teacher, no complaints.**" **"Clone her and have her teach all sections. Seriously."**

### Coastal Carolina University

For FA15 - SP16, I taught a total of 136 students.

Averages across all courses and sections:

Ratings are based on a four-point scale (4 - agree strongly, 3 - agree, 2 - disagree, 1 - disagree strongly)

### Colorado State University

For SP11 - SP15, I taught a total of 616 students. Some of these classes were as small as twelve students and some as large as 245.

Averages across all courses and sections:

Ratings are based on a five-point scale (5 - excellent, 4 - above average, 3 - average, 2 - below average, 1 - poor.)
