Welcome to the Homepage for Jim Riley
Hi! I'm a math instructor at Hartnell. In Fall 2014, I'm teaching the following classes:

Elementary Algebra (Math 121)
Intermediate Algebra (Math 123), two sections
Intro. to Mathematical Proof (Math 139A)

For syllabi, homework assignments, and other information about those classes, visit my other web page.

Educational Background
BA, Math, UC San Diego.

MS, Math, San Jose State.

After I got my master's, I did two more years of graduate work in math at the University of Oregon.

Teaching Experience
I taught math for two years at San Jose State and two years at the University of Oregon. I've been a full-time math instructor at Hartnell since Fall 2004, and was the Math Lab coordinator from Fall 2004 through Fall 2009.

Hobbies and Interests
I do lots of bicycling and running. I used to cycle competitively; my biggest race was the original Red Zinger Classic in Colorado back in 1975 (big, but not quite the Tour de France!). I've also run several marathons.

My other main hobby is playing classical piano. I've performed a few times at Hartnell and hope to do more of that in the future.
