Gary D. Kader

Gary D. Kader
Appalachian State University, NC

Gary Kader is a professor of mathematical sciences at Appalachian State University. He has been active in the development of educational materials for teaching and learning statistics through his involvement with six statistics education projects funded by the National Science Foundation. These projects developed innovative approaches to teaching and learning statistics and provided professional development opportunities for college faculty. His work in statistics education has focused on activity-based approaches to learning statistical concepts and problem solving. His interest in activity-based learning led him to direct the NSF project "A Laboratory Course in Mathematics for Liberal Arts Majors." He received a Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Georgia in 1980 and B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics from Georgia Southern University. He is a member of the American Statistical Association and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and he serves as a reviewer for the NCTM journal The Mathematics Teacher. He received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science from Georgia Southern University in 1996.
