6. List of Courses Taught:
MAT 101 ,Mathematical Foundations of Computability. Four courses per academic year. Four hundred students per academic year. Course is popular and in demand.

7. Summaries of Teaching Accomplishment:
In this course for liberal arts students, they are introduced to Logic with stress on valid argumentation, then Zennelo-Fraenkel set theory is introduced to lay the foundations for Dedekind and Peano Arithmetics which are essential for computability theory. Dedekind & Peano Arithmetics are then introduced in order to subsume Turing Machines. With the help of all of the above ingredients the course concludes with Goedel's Incompleteness Theorem which as the New York Times asserted several years ago should form an essential part of a university education.
