Author Bio

Larson, Ron : The Pennsylvania State University

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.

Hostetler, Robert P. : The Pennsylvania State University

Bob Hostetler received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from The Pennsylvania State University in 1970. He has taught at Penn State for many years and has authored several calculus, precalculus, and intermediate algebra textbooks. His teaching specialties include Remedial Algebra, Calculus, Math Education and his research interests include mathematics education and textbooks.

Edwards, Bruce H. : University of Florida

Bruce Edwards has been a mathematics professor at the University of Florida since 1976. Bruce was a mathematics major at Stanford University and graduated in 1968. He then joined the Peace Corps and spent four years teaching math in Colombia, South America. He returned to Dartmouth in 1972 and completed his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1976. Dr. Edwards' research interests include the area of numerical analysis, with a particular interest in the so-called CORDIC algorithms used by computers and graphing calculators to compute function values. Bruce's hobbies include jogging, reading, chess, simulation baseball games, and travel.
