Teaching is the part of the job that turns me on. I like to teach everything in mathematics that I know enough about, and often give reading courses on topics not covered in our regular offerings.
S62: Mathematics 1550H  Introduction to Probability
S12: Mathematics 4903  Reading Course in SetTheoretic Topology
Mathematics 1110H  Calculus I: Limits, Derivatives, and Integrals
Mathematics 2200H  Mathematical Reasoning
Mathematics 2260H  Geometry I: Euclidean Geometry
Mathematics 3830H  A Survey of the History of Mathematics
Mathematics 4790H  Measure Theory
These pages have links to handouts, assignments, quizzes, tests, and exams for these courses, including previous iterations I taught, in some cases with solutions. Reading courses and fourthyear courses, except MATHCOIS 4215H, are not included because I do not usually archive web pages for them.

I often teach reading courses. In some cases these are regular courses for students who are unable to take them when they are offered in the normal course of events, need them to graduate, or the like, in other cases they are on material outside our usual curriculum. Please note that the availability of reading courses may be limited by students' backgrounds, my background, the time and energy I have to spare, and approval by higher authorities.

Some things I've written or compiled:
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.
