About the Author

Cameron Butler

I am Cameron Butler, an undergrad here at USC. I worked along-side with Dr. Wei-Kai Lai to create: Proofs of a Trigonometric Inequality, a math article written to show proof of the inequality (See article for proof) . My motivation for this proof came from numerous reasons, beginning with my personal desire for solving difficult tasks. I also crave the chance to use my problem solving skills, especially when it requires abstract thinking. When the opportunity to work with Dr. Lai arises during a SC STEPs to STEM Summer Internship Program over the summer of 2013, I quickly accepted. Since working on this project, I have been enlightened to the importance of teamwork and research. It also encouraged me to pursue a career that uses math and problem solving skills. Before participating in this proof, I started my first year of college at USC Salkehatchie Walterboro campus,which was conveniently located in my hometown. There, I received the Dean’s Honors List for the 2012-2013 academic year, and met Dr. Wei-Kai Lai. I now study as a sophomore at USC Columbia. I major in Civil Engineering and wish on working toward a Master degree in the field. Though, in light of opening my own engineering firm, I want to expand my education into business and receive a MBA as well. I would like to thank Dr. Wei-Kai Lai. He has been an inspiring, genuine, and caring mentor. Not enough words could express the value I have found in his ability to share his own knowledge and wisdom. It has truly been a pleasure to work on such an intriguing proof with the help and support of such a magnificent mind.
