Selected Courses

I love teaching Calculus and Differential Equations. These subjects are so connected to nearly everything in the world, and to life itself! They are the very foundation of applied mathematics. I also very much enjoy teaching our introduction to proofs course (Sophomore Seminar), and our Analysis A and B courses. They not only build a rigorous theoretical foundation for a variety of applied courses, but they also offer a number of neat, surprising, new insights on some familiar calculus topics, and on the nature of mathematics itself.


Anand Pardhanani's area of scholarly interest is applied mathematics, broadly construed, with emphasis on math modeling, simulation, analysis and applications to real-life problems in the arts, sciences and society.  Some recent areas of work include: modeling flood-related phenomena such as dam breaks and tsunami run-ups; composing musical variations via differential equations; investigating the formation of patterns in animal coats.
