Sample Teaching Video

This is a sample teaching video introducing the idea of the Bias-Variance Trade-Off in the context of statistical learning. I envision this class session might come partway into a semester-long Data Science course that has introductory statistics as a prerequisite.

Calculus "Prework" Videos

In my Single and Multivariable Calculus class, I sometimes assign a brief introductory video over the weekend before we start a new concept in class. These videos provide a surface-level exposure and free up valuable class time for active engagement with the week's concept.

The video on the right reminds students of the limit definition of the derivative, focusing on a geometric interpretation. I often remind students they can turn me up to 2x speed if they prefer.

Asynchronous Lecture Videos

Last year during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, I taught my courses with a flipped classroom model. Students watched lecture videos before class time, then worked on homework problems in small groups (Zoom breakout rooms). Here I've embedded select lecture videos:

Laplace Transform and Delta Functions

This video is from an Intermediate Differential Equations course.

d'Alembert's Solution

This video is from an advanced Partial Differential Equations course.
