List of courses taught (2016.1–2023.1)


Courses prepared for self-study

Nevertheless, we have applied out work to our methodology for teaching the courses FMC1, FMC2, and FMC3.

My FMC1 class of 2022.2 was completely based on this work, and had by far the most successful results our course has seen so far. To help students who wish to self-study this material, I have re-organized and split its website in four different sites (and playlists), better suited for this use:

Studying these in advance is particularly recommended for students wishing to enroll in FMC2.
