Your instructor in this course is named Jason Vermette. The last "e" in Vermette is silent. Vermette rhymes with Corvette. Ok, it's one of those weak rhymes where only the last syllable matches, but you get the idea. I just wanted to make you associate my name with a cool car.
You can call me Dr. Vermette, or Dr. V if you prefer. This is my year teaching at MBU. Before that, I got my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Delaware. My work was primarily in Algebraic Combinatorics. Before that, I got my M.S. in Applied Mathematics at the University of Tulsa and my B.S. in Mathematics at Oral Roberts University, which is also in Tulsa.
I grew up mostly in Texas, with a few years in the middle in Oklahoma. I met my wife in college and got married the week after I graduated. We've since had four sons: Lucas, Finley, Sebastian, and Eli, ages . The kids take up pretty much all of our time. It's a lot of fun, but very exhausting.
I used to play guitar a lot and a few other instruments a little. I don't find much time for it anymore, but I still enjoy music.
I'm not so great with talking about myself, so let's leave it at that for now.
