A University of Iowa math teaching assistant reportedly has sent inappropriate photos to her students via email, instead of the anticipated math solutions.

A copy of the email revealed reads, “Hi class, I attach the solutions for number 76 and 78 in this email. Best.” The email then had four inappropriate photos of the TA and a man.

UI spokesman Tom Moore said in an email that the university is looking into the incident.

“University officials are aware of this matter and are looking into it,” he said. “We can confirm that a teaching assistant sent an email with inappropriate content to her students.”

He went on to say the TA, who remains unnamed, did not intend for the photos to be shared.

“The individual who sent the messages has stated that it was an accident,” he said. “She regrets her actions.”

The incident has quickly gained attention from UI students over social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Moore went on to say the actions done by the TA were inappropriate and the actions will be judged according to the current UI policies.

“This incident was inappropriate, and the university will look into it and take appropriate actions under our policies and procedures,” he said.
