TIMOTHY RICHTER - MATH

I'm from Racine, Wisconsin and I am a Physics major with a minor in Mathematics. After I graduate I plan on getting my teaching license to become a teacher. My goals while at UWW is to help other students who are in need. I once was stumped on many assignments and exams so I know what it is like to struggle and feel frustrated with your classes. Physics majors do a lot of math and most of the degrees require a lot of math courses to even graduate so my mathematics background is heavy, especially with some of the professors at this school. I started at 'rock-bottom' for math here at Whitewater starting with Math 041, so I had the time to actually relearn everything I learned in high school. I am very stubborn with getting things right and work hard to understand how something is solved. If you enjoy persistence and seeking more than just an answer, I'm the right guy.
