Teaching

The following table shows my teaching between 1995 and 2008 in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at UIC.

The department's standard "teaching load" (for active research faculty) was 2 courses per year for research assistant professors and 3 courses per year for assistant/associate/full professors. The department can reduce teaching load in various ways:
