Larson, Ron : The Pennsylvania State University, The Behrend College
Ron Larson received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Colorado and has been a professor of mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University since 1970. He has pioneered the use of multimedia to enhance the learning of mathematics, having authored over 30 software titles since 1990. Dr. Larson has also conducted numerous seminars and in-service workshops for math teachers around the country about the use of computer technology as a teaching tool and motivational aid. His Interactive Calculus(a complete text on CD-ROM) received the 1996 Texty Award for the most innovative mathematics instructional material at the college level. It is currently the first mainstream college textbook to be offered on the Internet.
