Chris K. Caldwell

I have taught Mathematics and Introductory Statistics at the University of Tennessee at Martin for over thirty-four years now.  I usually teach four courses per semester.  My print publications are listed on a separate page.  In my "spare time" I am an active web content developer with tens of thousands of web pages on prime numbers theory and records, especially the database of the 5,000 largest known primes.

Courses taught recently:
