My name is Serge Ballif, and I am a mathematician at Nevada State College. I love teaching and sharing ideas. I am a strong believer that everyone can enjoy and succeed in mathematics. I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics from The Pennsylvania State University, a M.S. in Mathematics from Utah State University, and a B.S. in Mathematics from Utah State University. I have a wonderful wife and three entertaining children who are good at keeping me busy and smiling.
The name of the blog Pi is exactly 3 comes from a desperate plea for attention from Professor Frink on the Simpsons. Any blog is a similar plea for attention, so I find the quote appropriate. I am fully aware that pi is not 3.
