Course Information

At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors and that you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know the faculty in your discipline.

Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. We are always developing and trying out new classes, so the list may change now and then.

MATH 226 | Calculus I

MATH 227 | Calculus II

MATH 311 | Ordinary Differential Equations

MATH 402 | Abstract Algebra

MATH 411 | Partial Differential Equations
