    got his certification in teaching, but he did not feel a strong connection to it. George later on went back to school for philosophy and was counseled by Bernat, a philosophy professor, to take additional courses: Math and physics. During this time George found himself interested in Mathematics; he stated, “I thought I am not good enough for physics and I am too good for philosophy. Mathematics is in between” (qt. in Ramirez). With the help of Bernat, Polya was able to gain a doctorate in Mathematics. He was able to work next to famous mathematicians where he gained knowledge that helped him in later years. Polay became one of the most eminent mathematician. He expanded the definition of mathematics; probability theory, geometry, combinatorics, algebra, and problem solving. Before he started working in Stanford Polya wrote his best seller book, How to Solve It.
