Brandeis Prize for Excellence in Teaching
The Louis Dembitz Brandeis Prize for Excellence in Teaching honors an individual for his or her outstanding teaching.
Assistant Professor of Mathematics
- "Professor Merrill is an outstanding instructor and has a seemingly effortless ability to make complex and high-level concepts seem simple. He is always willing to meet with students, whether to help them with course work and difficult concepts or advise them as a mentor."
- "Professor Merrill explains why a problem is solved a certain way, not just how to solve it. This is critical for future learning and helping students set up a framework for how to solve future problems on their own. He focuses on the process of learning above all."
- "I’ve never seen any other professor as supportive as Keith. He really stimulates students’ interest in math."
