Graduate courses in mathematics can be challenging. Accepting and overcoming challenges helps people to grow. I intend to grow by increasing my understanding of mathematics through rigorous course work, and then I intend to share this growth with my students. My students will benefit in several ways. I will have more knowledge to share with them. I will be better prepared to guide them through their learning of mathematical topics because of my increased knowledge base and also because I will be better able to relate to the experience of learning and tackling challenging mathematical work.
