Teaching

If you are an instructor considering using An infinite descent into pure mathematics to teach a course, please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have. My contact information can be found on my academic web page.

More guidance for using this textbook for teaching a course will appear here in the (hopefully) not too distant future.

Courses

To date, An infinite descent into pure mathematics has been used to teach eight courses spanning six semesters Carnegie Mellon University:

  • Spring 2018. 21-127 Concepts of Mathematics, instructed by Prof Mary Radcliffe.
  • Fall 2017. 21-128 Mathematical Concepts and Proofs and 15-151 Mathematical Foundations for Computer Science, both instructed by Prof John Mackey.
  • Summer 2017. 15-151 Mathematical Foundations for Computer Science for the SAMS program, instructed by myself.
  • Spring 2017. 21-127 Concepts of Mathematics, instructed by Prof David Offner.
  • Fall 2016. 21-128 Mathematical Concepts and Proofs and 15-151 Mathematical Foundations for Computer Science, both instructed by Prof John Mackey.
  • Summer 2015. 21-127 Concepts of Mathematics for the AP/EA program, instructed by myself.
