Over the years, my teaching philosophy has become deeply influenced by my experiences as an organizer. As organizers, our power comes from our relationships with one another; we build those relationships, along with the political goals that move us to action, though holistic conversations where we can develop a common vision for a better world together. Here is my teaching philosophy. In short, I do my best to realize a critical STEM pedagogy by making space in class to talk honestly about the human contexts of mathematics, especially through our own lived experiences.

Also, I write a lot of code to make cool visuals when I teach. My favorite language for this is Processing, which I learned in high school and honestly was an incredibly important step in my becoming a mathematician. It can be incredibly buggy sometimes, but it’s great for getting something beautiful on the screen quickly. I used to post my code online (nearly a decade ago, wowzers) here–it’s all legacy now, but I’ve maintained some of them and also occasionally upload new stuff I make for class. To the left is a screenshot from an applet I wrote in 2009, after talking with Melinda Green, that shows the orbits of points in the Mandelbrot mill. Math rocks, y’all.

Mathematical visualization is something I’ve always had a blast tinkering with. Here are some of the images and animations that I think are really gorgeous!
