Brief Biographical Sketch:

Siah Yong is a Stanford freshman going in way above his head by taking the Structural Liberal Education course. He is pining for the days where 1+1 still made 2 instead of launching a Plato-themed philosophical discussion on how some things are big and small at the same time and are one but two.

In order to return to these simpler days of yore, Siah Yong has decided to teach a math class.

Siah Yong was born in Singapore, and lived there all his life until coming to Stanford. He likes black forest cake, and dislikes the taste of Brussels sprouts.
