I always strive to make my life (as well as those around me) easier by harnessing the power of the analytic engine to do the day's menial tasks. You can find a list of most of my projects on my Github page. Projects of particular relevance I've listed below.
Graphit is a web interface for quickly creating and downloading as pdfs graphs of mathematical functions. The graphs are highly customizable, can be inserted into LaTeX documents, and best of all, the code used to generate them is embedded in each saved graph, so editing again later is easy!
Questionmaker is a little helper that outputs LaTeX/Beamer code for multiple choice clicker-style questions. It will autogenerate code for several layouts and will show you a nice preview of your question.
UVic scantron test results are emailed to you space-separated as the body of an email! This is not conducive to merging with your grading spreadsheet, which is where Scantron to Spreadsheet comes in. Given a list of IDs and the test summary data that was emailed to you, Scantron to Spreadsheet will merge the two producing a sorted list in the same order as your grade spreadsheet, suitable for copy-and-pasting.
I work with Sturmian sequences in my research. This webpage gives some properties of Sturmian sequences and provides some visualizations. It also includes a continued fraction calculator!
Linear Algebra Spring 2015, Math 211
You can find the course webpage here.
In Math 110, I used an inquiry-based approach to teaching
Linear Algebra. I constructed guided worksheets covering
the a first-semester course
following the textbook
In Math 100, I taught using a fully flipped classroom
in the style of Eric Mazur. I created a
Youtube
video playlists that covered each section of the textbook
A traditional lecture, nothing special here.
