**Teaching**

Students have the right to know the history of the topic we are
teaching:
the origin of the theory (where and why it begins),
the future of the subject (where it will go)
and more importantly, its impact to their life.

Before taking my courses, you would also like to know more about teaching style.

Here let me share my pros and cons in the course MATH1853
(A compulsory course of big class size for Engineering students)

Pros and cons 2012-13
Pros and cons 2013-14

Pros and cons 2016-17
Pros and cons 2017-18
The followings are my pros and cons in four courses MATH3905, MATH3408,
MATH4602 (small class size for Mathematics students) and a project type
course MATH3999

Pros and cons 2013-14
Pros and cons 2013-14
Pros and cons 2014-15
Pros and cons 2017-18
My teaching interests are mainly in mathematical modeling, queuing systems, matrix computations, stochastic process, numerical algorithms and simulation.
