About the Author:

Calvin Long received his B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Idaho. Following M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics from the University of Oregon he worked briefly as an analyst for the National Security Agency and then joined the faculty at Washington State University. His teaching ran the gamut from elementary algebra through graduate courses and included frequently teaching the content courses for prospective elementary school teachers.

                                                           

His other professional activities include serving on numerous committees of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Mathematical Association of America, and holding various leadership positions in those organizations. Professor Long has also been heavily engaged in directing and instructing in-service workshops and institutes for teachers at all levels, has given over one hundred presentations at national and regional meetings of NCTM and its affiliated groups, and has presented invited lectures on mathematics education abroad.

 

Professor Long has co-authored two books and is the sole author of a text in number theory. In addition, he has authored over ninety articles on mathematics and mathematics education, and also served as a frequent reviewer for both The Arithmetic Teacher and The Mathematics Teacher. In  1986, he received the Faculty Excellence Award in Teaching from Washington State University and, in 1991, he received a Certificate for Meritorious Service to the Mathematical Association of America.

 

Aside from his professional activities, Dr. Long enjoys listening to, singing, and directing classical music, reading, fly fishing, camping, and back packing.

Duane DeTemple received his B.S. with majors in Applied Science and Mathematics from Portland State College. Following his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Stanford University, he joined the faculty at Washington State University, where he is now Professor of Mathematics. He has been extensively involved with teacher preparation and professional development at both the elementary and secondary levels. Professor DeTemple has been a frequent consultant to projects sponsored by the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Higher Education Coordinating Board, and other boards and agencies.

 

Dr. DeTemple has co-authored three other books and over 80 articles on mathematics or mathematics materials for the classroom. He is a member of the Washington State University President’s Teaching Academy, and in 2007 was the recipient of the WSU Sahlin Faculty Excellence Award for Instruction and the Distinguished Teaching Award of the Pacific Northwest Section of the Mathematical Association of America.
