Professor Charlotte J. Chell's specialty is mathematical logic, which provides a theoretical basis for her work in computer science and gives her a special interest in the courses of discrete mathematics, abstract algebra, and computer organization. Her long-standing education interest is the pedagogy of quantitative literacy, the movement to insure that every college graduate has skills for managing everyday quantitative topics in the popular press, personal finance, and civic affairs. She is a frequent speaker at regional and national meetings of the MAA.
Prof. Chell has been honored as Carthage's Distinguished Teacher of the Year, and in 2010, received the 22nd Carthage Flame Award, only the second active member of the faculty to be presented with the College's highest honor. She has a Ph.D. and M.S. in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a B.A. in mathematics and philosophy from St. Olaf College. She joined the Carthage faculty in 1981. Read more.
