Bill Kunnecke


Bill Kunnecke has taught mathematics for nine years in 7th/8th grade classrooms at North Marshall Middle School in Calvert City, KY. He has a secondary Math Education degree from the University of Kentucky and a Masters in the same from Murray State University. Since 1993 he has been a part of the Kentucky Middle Grades Mathematics Teacher Network (KMGMTN), an NSF-funded project involving approximately 45 math educators from across the state, 25 of them classroom teachers.

Bill's experience includes providing in-services to teachers, being a workshop facilitator at statewide conferences, and participating as a "PBS Mathline" on-line facilitator for approximately 30 math teachers during the 1995-96 academic school year. This last project was very active last spring, with lively discussions, sharing information and ideas for teaching, and revising common materials. Bill is particularly interested in computers as a tool for mathematical investigations, and has focused his energy on generic software applications, taking extensive advantage of the Windows 3.1 spreadsheet to help students develop their geometric/algebraic conceptual knowledge. His geometric investigations have been done in the "Peanut Geometry" Software environment (DOS-based shareware).
