Courses

Engineering Mathematics

I teach second year service modules in mathematics for the Faculty of Engineering at Stellenbosch University, since I was appointed there in 2009.

There are two modules, one in each semester. I teach the English speaking students.

Foundations of Abstract Mathematics

Founded at Stellenbosch University jointly with I. Rewitzky in 2011.

Foundations of Abstract Mathematics is taught as a year module in the second year (Foundations of Abstract Mathematics I), and as a year module in the third year (Foundations of Abstract Mathematics II). I am the convener of both modules since their inception.

The modules combine various seminars that run in the Mathematics Division at Stellenbosch University. Each term there is at least one seminar that runs specifically for the participation of students enrolled in Foundations of Abstract Mathematics.

Honors Courses

I have taught several honors courses in mathematics, at Stellenbosch University. This includes a course in Topology that I taught in 2013, and Categorical Algebra in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
