Historical Note

"Math Medley" was a radio talk show that was broadcast from May 1998 to June 2004 from radio station WALE in Providence, Rhode, Island, or from KFNX in Phoenix, Arizona, and sometimes from both. Each week the host, Dr. Pat Kenschaft, or a guest host, interviewed a guest about a topic related to mathematics; the primary issues included education, parenting, equity, and environmental issues as well as mathematics itself. Among the guests were presidents of major mathematical organizations such as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Mathematical Association of America, American Mathematical Society, and the World Congress of Mathematicians, guests who were less well known, including teachers of mathematics at all levels, and people who used mathematics in environmental and financial fields.

The show began after the publication of Dr. Kenschaft’s book Math Power: How to Help Your Child Love Math Even If you Don't. "Math Medley" was self-funded with additional support from advertisers and the AMS.

Patricia Clark Kenschaft (b. 1940) grew up in Nutley, NJ. After earning an A. B. degree from Swarthmore College, she taught high school mathematics for a year, after which she took a summer course in number theory at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) with Emil Grosswald, who arranged a teaching fellowship for her at Penn. Dr. Kenschaft later finished her Ph.D. in C*-algebras at Penn under Edward Effros. In 1973 she joined the faculty of Montclair State University, from which she retired in 2005.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of audio cassette tapes and CD-ROMs of the shows. Shows from 1998 to June 30, 2001, and October 4 and 11, 2003, are in cassette format only; July 7 to August 18, 2001, are in both cassette and CD format; and August 25, 2001, to July 3, 2004, are in CD format only.
