Here I record only those courses that I have taught in recent years. Until September 2002 I taught three courses, each to a joint B.A./B.Ed. group of students. The grade for each course was made up from 25% for interm assessment (some combination of a Maple laboratory test and/or 1hour written paper), and 75% for a final 3hour written paper. In Jan 2006 I acquired the facility to convert Word documents to Adobe pdf format, and I attempted to convert all my current Word notes to pdf format, starting with my then 2nd/3rd year BA course The Real Numbers and Cantorian Set Theory. My 1^{st} year course  on Maple/Calculus/Analysis  was for a whole year, and was taught at two lectures per week, together with supporting Maple classes in small groups initially, and larger ones later in the year. My 2^{nd} year course  on Number Theory  lasts for half a year, and was taught at three/four lectures per week, together with supporting Maple classes. My 3^{rd} year course  on Number Theory and Cryptography  lasts for half a year, and was taught at three/four lectures per week, together with supporting Maple classes. Students took a 2hour practical Maple exam at the end of this course, and a 3hour written paper.
Since September 2004 I taught four courses, the above 2^{nd}^{ }and 3^{rd} year courses, together with two
halfyear long courses BA only courses, jointly offered to 2^{nd}^{ }and 3^{rd} year students, in the second
half of the academic year, alternating year on year:
