  3. 3. About the Author My name is Matthew Kahl. I am a mathematics major and computer science minor. I hope to help high school students develop their writing skills along with their critical thinking skills regarding computers and mathematics. I grew up in Clinton Twp., MI and went to Chippewa Valley High School. Once attending Grand Valley State University, I was turned on to the sport of ultimate frisbee. This was my motivation for creating this tutorial. Email Me Quit Author History Obj. Rules Throw Quiz Map Resrc. Strat.
