Dan Kennedy - Baylor School, Chattanooga, TN

Dan Kennedy received his undergraduate degree at the College of the Holy Cross in 1968 and went on to earn a Masters and Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since 1973 he has taught mathematics at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he is now holds the Cartter Lupton Distinguished Professorship. He is also the "Voice of the Red Raiders" for announcing home games in basketball, football, and (occasionally) six other sports.

Dan became an Advanced Placement Calculus reader in 1978, which led to an increasing level of involvement with the program as workshop consultant, table leader, and exam leader. He joined the AP Calculus Test Development Committee in 1986, then in 1990 became the first high school teacher in 35 years to chair that committee. He is a co-author of Prentice Hall textbooks in precalculus and calculus, and he is a series author of the Prentice Hall textbooks in algebra and geometry.

Dan was named a Tandy Technology Scholar in 1992 and a Presidential Award winner in 1995. He has served on the executive committee of the Mathematical Sciences Education Board and on the Board of Governors of the Mathematical Association of America. His articles on mathematics and education reform have appeared in the Mathematics Teacher, the American Mathematical Monthly, and the College Mathematics Journal.
