Summary of expertise:
Dr. 13, also known as Thomas Fernsler, a math specialist at the University of Delaware, has a long-term relationship with the number 13. He has extensively studied the number and its affiliation with the "spooky" date on the calendar and is a treasure trove of interesting facts about it. I know more than probably anybody really wants to know about it, Fernsler says. His fascination with 13 translates into a teaching tool for kids when he visits elementary and middle school classrooms and shows students how math can be used to look for patterns and coincidences.
