Hello, I've been a math student ever since starting school, a math teacher ever since I realized I could help someone, and a lover of mathematics ever since I realized lots of things can be counted.

I'm currently a doctoral candidate and Graduate Teaching Fellow at the University of North Texas. My dissertation appears to deal with cubic number fields, reduced ideals, and multi-dimensional continued fractions. Perhaps that will get clearer with time...

 73 Why do you add +1 in counting test questions? 28 Why is it that if I count years from 2011 to 2014 as intervals I get 3 years, but if I count each year separately I get 4 years? 23 Why exactly does the distributive property work? 22 Do equal bases imply equal powers? 21 Double Angle Equations
