Most courses taught are mechanicsbased. Although these courses often rely on mathematics, the emphasis has always been on relating the mathematical results to the physical interpretation. Only a sound understanding of the underlying physical question can motivate the students to speak the mathematical language. This ability to speak and comprehend the mathematical language can then be developed to apply the knowledge of mechanics. Courses taught: Graduate Courses
