Joe Vaiana

Joe Vaiana, my father, was the kindest, smartest, funniest, and most loving person I've ever known. It is an honor to dedicate RootMath to him.

Prof. Michael Zwick

Michael Zwick's unending humor and enthusiam for math truly allowed me to embrace the subject. I will forever be grateful for the side of math and education that he showed me.

Prof. Steve Kilner

Prof. Kilner was an inspiration and a very gracious source of mathematical guidance. He is the embodiment of what a great teacher is and should be.

Dr. Scott Russel

Dr. Russel taught my first and only computer science class and without him this website would not have been possible. Every bit of php and javascript code on this website (written by me) is a direct result or adaptation of things I learned in Dr. Russel's class. He has been extremely helpful and patient and made learning Java interesting and challenging.
