As a Mathematics major ('60-'64) at IIT, I had only one course with Dr. Menger: "Menger Calculus." It was an evening course, provided primarily for practicing engineers and others employed during the day. The instruction provided a unique geometric, rather than delta-epsilon theory, approach to the concepts of Calculus, all presented in a very understandable way. I have utilized that philosophical approach (concrete before theoretical) in my 40+ years as a mathematics educator.
