Cal Long received his undergraduate degree in Mathematics at the University of Idaho and his Ms and PhD in Mathematics at the University of Oregon. Since then, he has served as Professor of Mathematics at Washington State University for 36 years and, quite frequently, taught the two-semester mathematics content course for elementary school teachers.
He has also served as an invited speaker at international, national, and regional mathematics education meetings including at least 150 presentations at national and regional meetings of NCTM and state affiliates. Cal has conducted numerous in-service programs for elementary, middle school, and high school teachers and has directed numerous summer institutres for teachers, served as educational consultant for the National Science Foundation, for the National Assessment of Educational Progress, and for the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction. He also served on numerous committees for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Mathematical Association of America, including committees that drew up guidelines for the mathematical preparation of teachers.
Duane DeTemple received his BS degree in Applied Science from Portland State college, and went on to earn his MS and Ph. D. in mathematics from Stanford University. He has been on the mathematics faculty at Washington State University since 1970, where he became a full professor in 1985.
His research productivity includes nearly 100 papers in analysis, geometric probability, geometry, combinatorics, graph theory, and curriculum materials for K-12 classrooms. He was Boeing Distinguished Professor of Science and Mathematics Education for 2000-2002.
Dr. DeTemple's family is also committed to teaching: his wife Janet teaches violin, his daughter Jill is completing her Ph. D. in religious studies at the University of North Carolina, and his younger daughter Rachel is a high school English teacher.
