TEACHING 1. TEACHING EXPERIENCE IN SULTAN QABOOS UNIVERSITY (September 1998-To date) C4.1. Instruction and Project Supervision After joining SQU in 1998, I have taught and coordinated several courses at different levels. Some of the courses coordinated had large student registrations (approx. 800+). Starting Fall 2010, I had been involved in teaching the newly introduced Foundation Program Courses for four continuous semester. From the feedback received from students and colleagues, I understand that my teaching efforts have been effective. At SQU, the main courses I have taught are Math 4174 Differential equations for Eng. Math 4474 Partial differential equations Math 2108 Calculus 1I Math 2107 Calculus 1 Math 1192 Mathematics for Agriculture I Math 1106 Precalculus Math 1102 Mathematics for Commerce & Economics II Math 1101 Mathematics for Commerce & Economics I Math 1063 Mathematics for Commerce & Economics III Math 1062 Mathematics for Commerce & Economics II Math 1061 Mathematics for Commerce & Economics I FPMT0104 Mathematics for Social Sciences (in Arabic) I have also been involved in projects supervisions at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. A number of topics in Applied Mathematics/Fluid Mechanics, having important practical application in Engineering and industry, have been taken up in these projects. The detailed list of projects supervision is given below: Page | 3 B. Sc.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE AT OTHER UNIVERSITIES I had taught a number of courses at M. Sc. level (Sudan University for Science and Technology). I had also supervised one M. Sc. Project. The details are given below: Ordinary differential equations Integral calculus Newtonian mechanics Analytical mechanics Advanced calculus Mathematical methods Inviscid incompressible flow Compressible flow Viscous flow Numerical methods Advanced mathematical methods Partial differential equations Integral Equations Fortran Language M. Sc. (Principal Supervisor) at Sudan University for Science and Technology Student name Title of project Khalid Ahmed Mohamed Solving Regular and Singular Plane Boundary Value Problems Page | 5 C4.2. Curriculum Development and Teaching Management I played a major role in the curriculum development of Foundation Program. When the Foundation Program started at SQU, there were two streams of students to whom the courses had to be offered: One stream with English as medium of study and the second stream with Arabic. Although standard textbooks were available for the English stream, there were no published material of the prescribed syllabus that could be used for the Arabic stream. I was actively involved in the translation and development of the teaching material in Arabic language. In Teaching Management, I have contributed notably in the teaching and coordination of courses in the main stream degree program as well as in the Foundation Program. Some of these courses had large number of student registrations. In my teaching, I have given attention to involve students in the learning progress. In the classroom and outside student interactions, I take special care to explain the mathematical concepts and problems in a clear and logical manner. I believe that my teaching efforts have gone well with the students. The coordination of multi-section courses needs extra efforts in its teaching management. In this capacity, the main duties are: Prepare course outline, organize course meetings, prepare and conduct examinations and manage the grading, and prepare and submit the final results. As coordinator, I monitor the teaching of the course continuously with a view to improve it in all aspects. In general, my colleagues and students have appreciated my efforts. Another area where I have contributed in the Teaching Management is in the preparation of manuals and leaflets. Special mention may be made about my contributions to the Workstations when they were first installed in the Department. I prepared the following manuals and leaflets: Manuals for MATH2107 (Calculus I) for the students in the department to help them understand the textbook.

SCHOLARLY ACHIEVEMENTS C6.1 Research Interests My main research interest is focused on computational and analytical fluid dynamics. Problems in heat and mass transfer, porous media, and creeping flow have been investigated using the analytical method of Fourier analysis while for computational problems, Boundary Element Method and Finite Difference Method have been used. In my research, I have considered both Newtonian and non- Newtonian fluids. Some of the problems considered have direct relevance to geophysical fluid dynamics, while other find applications in engineering and industry C6.2 Publications Summary: Total Published papers = 22 Total Published books = 1 Published papers after joining SQU = 18 Published books after joining SQU = 1 C6.2.1.
