In the Fall 2016 term I will be teaching::

MATH 303 - Introduction to Number Theory and Cryptology.
We will be using a textbook entitled, "**A Friendly
Introduction to Number Theory, 4th Edition", by Joseph H. Silverman**.
This course develops basic concepts in number theory and investigates applications
to the exciting field of secure communications and cryptosystems.

In Spring 2016 I am teaching:

MATH 302 - Department Seminar. a seminar devoted to understanding the formulation and solution of mathematical problems. We will study, from a mathematical as well as a historical viewpoint, how mathematics advances as a discipline--what mathematicians do. The course will largely be in a seminar format. We will be using the book, "Mathematics and Its History, ThirdEdition", by John Stillwell.

MATH 465 - Differential Geometry This course studies the geometry of curves and surfaces in Euclidean space: intrinsic and extrinsic geometry, curvature, structural equations of Riemannian geometry, and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem. Prerequisite: Math 321. We will be using the book, "Differential Geometry: Curves - Surfaces - Manifolds", by Wolfgang Kuhnel.
