Donald Wengerd

Lead Instructor
I like math because of the many fun challenges it presents, and the problem-solving skills it builds that are applicable in so many other aspects of life. My favorite math subject is calculus, which is both the most difficult and most enjoyable class I have ever taken. I plan to teach math after college, so I like working at Mathnasium for the experience it gives me working with students; moreover, it is very fulfilling to help students get the extra help they need to be more confident and excited about their work. My favorite number is 3: it's a solid number, and triangles are pretty cool too. My favorite hobbies are playing saxophone and guitar, as well as long-distance running. An interesting fact is that the modern form of calculus was discovered by two different people independently, and published at about the same time.
