Spring 2017 Office Hours (Kassar 114): Mondays 3pm-5pm, Tuesdays 2pm-3pm, Wednesdays 1pm-3pm, Friday afternoons by appointment
Hello! I'm Daniel (Dan) Katz. I grew up outside Philadelphia, studied mathematics and theater at MIT and then more mathematics at Brown, spent a few years in North Carolina, and now I'm back in Providence.
As of Fall 2012, I have been appointed as a Lecturer in Mathematics, a newly established position at Brown. My responsibilities include teaching calculus, overseeing Brown's calculus program, undergraduate curriculum development, and teacher training.
I am also the department's Placement Advisor, which means I give students advice about which courses they should take within the calculus-linear algebra sequence. (Though before talking to me, students may wish to utilize the online tools posted here.) Students seeking advice about 1000-level courses and above should contact the Concentration Advisor, currently Professor Richard Schwartz.
And I also handle transfer credit requests for calculus and linear algebra courses. For more information on how to submit such a request, look here.
For more information on my background and what I do, you can view my Curriculum Vitae, or you can click the links above.
(PS - Yes, I was on Jeopardy! in 2010. No, I did not win. But feel free to tell me about how you would have known the answer to my Final Jeopardy! question, because that never gets old.)
