About the Author
C. C. Edwards has a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and is currently teaching mathematics on the undergraduate and graduate levels. She has been using technology in the classroom since before Texas Instruments came out with its first graphing calculator, and she frequently gives workshops at national and international conferences on using technology in the classroom. She is the author of TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator for Dummies and TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculator for Dummies and she has written 40 activities for the Texas Instruments Explorations Web site. She was an editor of Eightysomething!, a newsletter that used to be published by Texas Instruments. She still hasn’t forgiven TI for canceling that newsletter.
Just barely five feet tall, CC, as her friends call her, has three goals in life: to be six inches taller, to have naturally curly hair, and to be independently wealthy. As yet, she is nowhere close to meeting any of these goals. When she retires, she plans to become an old-lady carpenter.
