Most helpful classes: A lot of my classes at Witt were really helpful. Real Analysis with Dr. Parker was challenging and helped me learn to think deeper about math. The classes I took with Dr. Higgins taught me how to write logical proofs and Number Theory with Dr. Stickney was really helpfully since I’m now interested in doing research in Number Theory. The two classes I took with Dr. Andrews were helpfully because they made the one stat course I had to take in grad school a breeze.
Courses You Wish You Would’ve Taken: I should have taken Multivariable Calculus while I was at Witt, I just didn’t like the teaching style of the instructor at the time. An intro complex analysis course or topology course would have been really helpful. Or a class on rings and fields.
Most Helpful Experiences: Working with Dr. Parker and giving a talk at the Ohio MAA meeting. Along with all of the support and help from the department in finding an REU and grad school.
