Remembering Jerry Uhl
October 25, 2010 — Jean Buck, Director of Content Development, Wolfram|Alpha
Wolfram Research is saddened to announce the passing of Jerry Uhl, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of Illinois. Jerry’s scholarly contributions to the field of mathematics are numerous, but we will remember him best for his passion for education and mathematics reform, which led him to the development of the Calculus&Mathematica program that is still used today by progressive math programs.
For his support of Mathematica and his innovation in math education, Wolfram Research presented Jerry with the first Mathematica Pioneer Award in 2008. The following video was made for the presentation of that award.
Jerry was a good friend to Mathematica and a close personal friend to many of us at Wolfram Research. He will be sorely missed.
