"I'm a graduate from Illinois State University with a degree in Mathematics Education, and I grew up in Palatine, IL. My favorite subjects are geometry and calculus but I love all math. A lot of people don't realize how fun mathematics is because they don't understand that mathematics is just an elaborate puzzle with many rules; we just have to know them. This is the same with any game you play- you have to learn the rules before you can properly play."
