Dr. Weston's primary objective in teaching mathematics is to nurture understanding of the subject via the geometric emphasis of meaning, and to further develop this process of understanding through relevant -- hopefully, compelling -- real-world applications. In particular, motivated and informed by his high school background in technical drawing and solid geometry, Dr. Weston seek's ways to encourage direct visual interplay between the students and the mathematical constructs under consideration.
Dr. Weston has excellent teaching credentials, including considerable experience in American, Australian, and South African universities. He has taught a wide variety of pure mathematics courses, in both large and small lecture hall formats, and at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In 2016, Dr. Weston was awarded the Arts and Sciences Faculty Teaching Award at Canisius College.
