Teaching Physical Science at University of Maryland Europe

I joined the University of Maryland's European Division as adjunct faculty in January 1973 and taught physical science in about 350 courses until July 2009 (37 years). Most courses met twice each week on Mondays through Thursdays evenings. There were also frequent noontime and weekend courses and recently also morning teaaching, 8:00h through 12:50h, at Schwaebisch Gmuend College. Altogether, I drove more than 1.5 million kilometers to teach at US Air Force and Army installations, such as:

I have had the pleasure of meeting more than 7,000 students in my courses, and I love them all. They deserve my thanks, for they have taught me a lot! I thank them for their time & interest in my teaching and professional research. They motivated me greatly in the courses I taught, and especially in my emphasis on the role of mathematics in our lives and the universe. 

I provided each student with a special course guide, which I wrote and printed at home. With each guide having an average of 20 pages, this amounted to more than 140,000 pages two-sided printed on my laser, first black and white, later in color, always bound in plastic cover; production was, therefore, quite an investment of time and effort.
