Teaching is the part of the job that turns me on. I like to teach everything in mathematics (except that applied stuff!), and often give reading courses on topics not covered in our regular offerings.
Mathematics 2200H  Mathematical Reasoning
Mathematics 2260H  Geometry II: Projective and NonEuclidean Geometry
Mathematics 3810H  Ancient and Classical Mathematics
Mathematics 4900Y  Reading Course in Calculus on Manifolds
Mathematics 1550H  Introduction to Probability
Mathematics  Communications & Critical Thinking 1080H  Math for Everyday Life
Mathematics 4900Y  Reading Course in Calculus on Manifolds
I often teach regular courses as reading courses for students who are unable to take them when they are offered in the normal course of events. Reading courses on material outside our usual curriculum which I have taught a time or three in the recent past, and could readily do so again for anyone interested, include:
I have written or am writing a couple of texts, all of which are or will be released for free in electronic form. (Working on these is a large part of my sabbatical program.)
My interests are in combinatorial set theory, particularly problems about Souslin trees, and in geometry, on nonDesarguesian projective planes. I've also worked a bit on binary codes.
