Over the years, I had a pleasure and an honor to teach some outstanding undergraduate students. It would be very difficult to list them all, so I will list a small subset representative of the overall experience. In the case of Missouri students, the criterion for making the list is fulfilling one of the following conditions: i) getting a non-zero score on the Putnam ii) membership on the Mizzou Putnam team or the Missouri State Competition team iii) passing two or more of my courses or an absolutely outstanding performance in one of my courses. If you were a student in one of my classes, please send me an email and tell me how you are doing!
