Lynn Arthur Steen, a professor emeritus of mathematics at St. Olaf College who was an advocate of quantitative literacy, died on June 21. He was 74.

Mr. Steen worked at St. Olaf for 44 years before retiring, in 2009. He helped restructure the math program to make it more accessible to nonmajors.
Many of his papers, articles, lectures, and edited volumes made the case for revitalizing the study of mathematics. He served on a panel that helped create the influential Everybody Counts: A Report to the Nation on the Future of Mathematics Education, published in 1989 by National Academy Press.
From 1992 to 1995, he was executive director of that panel, the Mathematical Sciences Education Board of the National Research Council.

Obituary: Lynn Steen made math fun, relevant and accessible for St. Olaf students By Tim Harlow Star Tribune July 16, 2015 - 7:22pm itemprop Feed Loader Lynn Steen

...
Lynn Steen was one of the most respected and articulate voices in the field of mathematics, dedicating his career to advancing the way the discipline was taught and making it an appealing major for college students.
Steen had the belief that math should be a pump and not a filter, something that pushes people forward and does not weed them out, said Matthew Richey, professor of mathematics, statistics and computer science and one of Steen's colleagues at St. Olaf College in Northfield.
...
Steen, 74, died of heart failure on June 21 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.
Born in Chicago, Steen grew up on Staten Island in New York.
...
Steen graduated from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, in 1961 with majors in mathematics and physics. Four years later, he earned his doctoral degree in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at age 24. He started teaching at St. Olaf in 1965. Along with standard math classes, he taught an introduction to a computer science course called "Down the Rabbit Hole: the Mathematical Excursions of Lewis Carroll" and another in which he teamed with his wife, a St. Olaf English professor, to teach math and science students how to write essays that appeal to nontechnical audiences.
...
"Lynn's influence at the MAA is legendary; he probably did more to shape and focus it on its core missions than any other recent president," said Paul Zorn, another St. Olaf mathematics professor and former president of the MAA.
...
In his later years, Steen was a special assistant to the provost at St. Olaf and served on numerous committees.
...
Besides his wife, Steen is survived by a brother, Richard, of New York City; two daughters, Margaret Steen, of Los Altos, Calif., and Catherine Wille, of Fergus Falls, Minn., and six grandchildren.
