Professor Dr. Wei-Chi Yang (www.radford.edu/~wyang) was born and received his B.S. from Taiwan, and received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California at Davis in 1988. Since 1991, he started implementing the use of technology in his teaching and research. His original research interest was in the theoretical integration theory and thanks to computer software technologies, he is able to experiment his integration quadratures with his theoretical approaches. Professor Yang has written many papers which demonstrate how technology could make complex and abstract concepts more accessible to students. The topics range from Pre-Calculus, Calculus, to Linear Algebra and Advanced Calculus. He has co-authored a book 'Exploring Mathematics with Mathematics' with Professor Jonathan Lewin. He also had given over 200 international presentations around the world. Professor Yang had a vision in early 1990 that technology will make an impact in the area of Mathematics, thus he founded the Asian Technology Conference in Mathematics (ATCM) (www.atcminc.com) in 1995.
