Ph.D., Stanford, 1970

Recipient of the 2007 WSU Sahlin Faculty Excellence Award for Instruction and the Pacific Northwest MAA Distinguished Teaching Award
Dr. DeTemple has spent 36 years sharing his time and love of problem-solving with his students. He has been eager to enhance learning by presenting mathematics in ways that engage students who have been "turned off" or told they could not succed in understanding mathematics. His efforts to present concepts in new and interesting ways have reached a wide audience in the form of many scholarly papers, presentations at symposia, handbooks and textbooks. His contribution is richly reflected in the enthusiasm of many current and former students, who attribute their successes as teachers to his inspiration.
