Marlow is a graduate of Whitman College (1972), and received his Ph.D. in 1977 from the University of Kansas, writing a dissertation on Lattice-ordered groups. Over the years, his scholarly interests have changed, with a primary emphasis on mathematical exposition and the history of mathematics. His most recent book is a popular account of The Physics of Scuba Diving. He enjoys teaching mathematics to CC students; his particular favorite courses include calculus, linear algebra, number theory, real and complex analysis, and of course abstract algebra, which he teaches out of a text he co-authored.
