I graduated in 1984. Mr. Z stands to this day as the man who embodied my passion for mathematics--I could not have Euler, Laplace or Cauchy, but Mr. Z was truly inspiring and made me feel capable of tackling any mathematical problem. During 1983-1984 he prepared then student Michael Reed, who was also part of the Advance Match class, to complete in the international Math Olympiads, where Michael won Gold and Silver for the U.S.A. team! I wish I cold get a hold of him and thank him.

He often plays favorites and invests time in a select few. Amazing students with proofs from years ago. If you're a Feynman, you'll get special treatment. If you're a closet Einstein, expect to be looked over.

He focuses on clear delivery of the material and absolute command of the subject. As a physicist, I hope to do the same. His favorite physicist,Richard Feynman, and his teachings likely inspired him.

I had Zimmerman for BC Calculus in 1998 and I find his pedagogy even to this day truly inspiring. He’d even gone beyond the curriculum to introduce us fractional derivatives, ii= e-π/2 and advanc

I have just reconnected with Mr Z after 25 years and spoken to him on the phone. He was so much more than just a math teacher. He cared about his students and enriched our lives. He is like a Schaum's outline for life. Thanks for everything Mr Z.

He was my math team and BC calc teacher. He is the best teacher I ever had. Being in his class inspired me for the rest of my life. He did not only taught Calculus; he taught us how to think logically through reasoning. I would not be where I am right now (in a PhD program in CS) without being in his class. I hope he will read these one day. Thanks, Zimmerman.

I took his BC Calculus class in 1997. For the past three years I have been teaching math at a high school after getting my master's in math. Mr. Zimmerman had a lot to do with me not only enjoying math but actually pursuing it and becoming a teacher of the subject. And I enjoy every single moment of it. Thank you Mr. Zimmerman.

He knew how to teach math as well as every other subject. He is a true Renaissance man. I learned more about Math, English and the world from him than I did from all of my other teachers at Tech.

Gave me back my work with just "nonsense!" written on it as a grade, so don't expect an easy A. Not sure if they taught that in teaching school, either. Failed.
