Erik Packard, PhD, teaches most mathematics classes and often the sophomore statistics class. Whenever possible, he teaches so that he focuses on mechanics in a way that calls on the students' intuition so they have more of a feel for what they are doing. Packard's doctorate was in analysis. His research area tends to be in number theory. He is a mountain climber and has climbed almost 1,400 peaks in Colorado.
