#### Daniel Kennedy

**Dr. Dan Kennedy** got his BSc from the College of the Holy Cross and his master’s degree and Ph.D. in math from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since 1973 he has taught mathematics at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he holds the Cartter Lupton Distinguished Professorship. Dan joined the Advanced Placement® (AP) Calculus Test Development Committee in 1986, then in 1990 became the first high school teacher in 35 years to chair that committee.

It was during his tenure as a chair that the program moved to require graphing calculators and laid the early groundwork for the 1998 reform of the AP Calculus curriculum.
