This page lists the classes that I have been a teaching assistant for, and provides the course notes that I developed for those classes. I have also made the decision to share all of my teaching evaluations publicly on this page, as a commitment mechanism to always teach as well as possible. I'm proud to be one of the very few website administrators who host criticisms of themselves!

Because teaching evaluations are very hard to read in their original format (in particular, the PDFs that I receive from the University scramble all sorts of information about the main instructor's lectures together with information about me and the sections I teach), I have compiled all of my written evaluations into one document [166 KB download, PDF]. The accuracy and completeness of the compiled reviews, which have simply been copied directly from the originals, can be verified using the originals which are provided under each course heading.
