Teaching

 

Current

In the summer at Cedar Point Biological Station I teach Ecology & Evolution (BIOS 207), an undergraduate course required for a biology major or biology minor. In the fall semester I teach Fundamental of Biology II (LIFE 121), a required course for all Life Sciences related majors across the university. In the spring semester I will be revising the labs for this course LIFE 121L so as to update their pedagogy and align their content with the objectives of the new LIFE courses.

 

Past

In the past I have taught Principles of Ecology (BIOS 805), a graduate course for the begninning students in Ecology, Evolution & Behavior.

For one semester I taught Biostatistics for undergraduate students.

In the past I have taught a maximum likelihood course as part of the program Enhancing Linkages in Mathematics and Ecology (ELME) at the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station

Tools

The following software tools can be used to examine systems of differential equations and conduct maximum likelihood analysis.  They are written as Mathematica notebooks.  Wolfram CDF Player is a free program that can be used to view Mathematica notebooks (*.nb); however, you will need a full version of Mathematica to execute the code.

Here is a great web-based clock that can be projected for the students when giving exams.
