Jorge Eduardo Basilio

My name is Dr. Jorge Eduardo Basilio and I am a full-time professor of mathematics at Mt SAC; however, I've been teaching math for over a decade at both large public schools and also small private liberal arts colleges. 

I am passionate about student success and am eager to help in any way that I can. I want you to remember my course policies are carefully chosen to balance high standards with understanding/leniency to ensure your success.

I am trying to stay research active and I study how manifolds with positive scalar curvature converge (see my website for details and my research papers). I would love to discuss potential projects and get students involved in research! Just drop by my office hours anytime (be it in person or virtual).

Some of my interests include about all things coffee (like espresso), playing my electric guitar at unreasonably loud volumes, and UCLA Bruins.

I've lived in many places: Argentina, So Cal, and NYC.

Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on-campus Monday through Thursday. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.


The Math and Computer Science Department is committed to helping our students achieve their math educational goals. We want you to succeed and excel in transfer-level mathematics.
