What Students Say
"One of the driving forces behind Dennis Schneider's teaching are his high expectations, which offer students a genuine challenge. Taking a class with Professor Schneider is not easy, but the combination of one's own hard work and Professor Schneider's desire above all to help students understand makes the task doable. Working through such an intensive course of study leaves students with a level of understanding which they would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. One reflects on a course with Professor Schneider and finds oneself in awe of the amount one has learned."
-Michael Kaminski, Mathematics Major and Philosophy Minor

"Professor Schneider's passion for mathematics, lively personality, and desire to see his students truly learn the material make him a wonderful instructor. He is always available in his office, and is always willing to offer help. If you have a course with him, so long as you apply yourself, you can be sure that you will learn a tremendous amount about mathematics."
-Jeremy Edison, Mathematics Major and Literature Minor
