Degrees

  • Ph.D., North Carolina State University

Selected Courses

I love teaching most mathematics courses! As an algebraist, I have lots of fun teaching the Abstract Algebra sequence. In this sequence we explore mathematical structures and how these structures live. I also enjoy other transition courses such as Sophomore Seminar, a course that introduces students to the techniques of proofs, and Calculus A, the first time we really have to deal with infinitely large and infinitely small.

Biography

Julie Beier’s research gets very complicated very quickly. To explain it, she uses metaphors. For example: It’s like understanding a person by looking at their actions in the world. But rather than people, Julie studies Lie algebras. She also has projects in algebraic combinatorics, algebra, graph theory, and the learning of mathematics.
