## Old notes

Several handouts from courses I taught in my time at Washington University in St. Louis have gotten a lot of interest, and I've moved to hosting them here. I'm providing these as-is, and there may be typos or errors.

- Polynomial rings and unique factorization domains, including a brief introduction to the face ring of a simplicial complex (from Modern Algebra, Spring 2009)
- Zorn's Lemma and maximal ideals (from Modern Algebra, Spring 2009)
- Some notes on the symmetric group (from Modern Algebra, Spring 2009)
- Proof of the continuous Chebyshev inequality (from Probability, Fall 2010)
- The Central Limit Theorem for medians (from Mathematical Statistics, Spring 2011)
- Differentiating under the integral (with help from Kabe Moen, from Mathematical Statistics, Spring 2011)
- Two (similar) handouts on finding upper bounds using the triangle inequality, for lower-level courses. Applied to:

## Awards

I won the Guido Weiss Teaching and Service Award while at Washington University in St. Louis, given by the math department each year for “excellence in the teaching of mathematics and in service to the department and students”. Here's a picture of Guido Weiss giving me the award. It's interesting to note that Guido was born in Trieste, about 15 minutes from where I now work in Koper.
