This Fall, I am teaching
Last year, I taught PIC16.
Previously, I have taught Math 115A, Math 95, and Math 131A (many, many times).
I have also taught Math 117, Math 31A, Math 31B, and Math 32B.
You can have a laugh about what my students say about me here and here.
Music, Audio, and Video
I am obsessed with music and audio. Don't talk to me about Meshuggah or Car Bomb rhythms, or DSP (digital signal processing) unless you have a couple of hours available.
I play metal guitar. Here's a Meshuggah cover. Here's a partial Car Bomb cover. Here's one of my own.
Although I am currently more focussed on the guitar, for years, I have made electronic music. A general correlation is that the more recent the electronic music, the more math I used to make it! My "best" music can be found here.
One time, I made a track featuring Kathryn Hess. A mathematical process called convolution was used to help create this from conference talks which we gave at Union College.
My desire to create audiovisual art was the reason that I started to code. I have a webpage dedicated to this art: michael-j-andrews.com.

Some pictures of spectral sequence E2 pagesThank you to Yan Zhang for help with plotting the first two.
E2 page for the v1 periodic sphere at 5 - you'll need to wait for it to load and zoom out a lot
