SMPosium Snapshot, Day One


On the Math Family:
“Math is a community. If you stay in math, you will be seeing the people in this room for the rest of your career.”

On Representation Theory:
“If we just pick a random fruit off a tree and we want to know if it’s an apple or an orange, sometimes we can compare them using matrices to decide if it is an apple or an orange.”

On Teacher/Student:
“In a couple of years, all of you will be standing in front of this room giving a presentation your teachers won’t be able to understand.”

On Getting Dressed:
“When you teach, you’re always reaching up to the top of the board. In the morning, you really need to stand in front of the mirror and hold your arms over your head– if your shirt rides up, go change into something else.”
