Video Production for Mathematics

Undergraduate & Graduate, University of Pennsylvania, Department of Electrical/Systems Engineering, 2021

I was the teaching assistant for Video Production for Mathematics, an experimental course taught in the math deparment by my advisor Robert Ghrist. The course was in seminar format, usually consisting of software demos as well as Q&A. The focal point of the class was a final project in which students produced their own math videos.

I was the teaching assistant (TA) for a course Engineering Mathematics (ENM) 503 for the Summer 2018 term. The course was accelerated, meeting 2 times per week for 3+ hours. My responsibilities included

  • Leading weekly 1 hour recitation sessions where I would collaboratively solve homework problems on the chalkboard. I tried hard to foster an friendly classroom environment where all students felt comfortable taking part in solving challenging problems.
  • I graded extensive weekly problem sets as well as quizzes. Students would take quizzes at the beggning of the class time and I would provide feedback before the class was finished.
  • I held office hours every week. Since the class was so small, I had the opportunity to mentor students 1-on-1, especially in during these office hours.
