WMC's 'Skip' Fennell elected to math council


April 19, 1993

Dr. Francis "Skip" Fennell, professor of education at Western Maryland College, has been elected to the board of directors of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

He began a three-year term on the board after the council's annual meeting in Seattle this month.

Dr. Fennell has been involved in several council projects, including editorial board member and author of the forthcoming book, "Special Education and Mathematics;" editorial panel member of the Arithmetic Teacher journal, including chairman from 1987 to 1989; and author and editor of a number of other programs and reports.

In 1992, Dr. Fennell completed work on "Number Sense Now!" a program he created for elementary school teachers to demonstrate and promote the teaching of "number sense" -- the ability to understand numbers and use them in a variety of contexts and situations.

In 1990, he received the Outstanding Mathematics Educator award from the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Dr. Fennell received his bachelor of science degree from Lock Haven University and a master's degree in elementary education and guidance from Bloomsburg University. He received a doctorate in elementary math education from Pennsylvania State University.
