Dr. Evelyn Pupplo-Cody
Professor, Department of Mathematics
B.S. (Mathematics), University at Albany, S.U.N.Y.
M.A. (Mathematics), St. Joseph’s College
PhD. (Mathematics), University of Kentucky
Dr. Pupplo-Cody has taught numerous undergraduate
courses at Marshall, including Differential
Equations; Introduction to Proofs; Discrete
Mathematics; Topology; Linear Algebra; Mathematics
for Elementary Teachers; History of Mathematics;
Introductory Calculus with Applications;
Precalculus; Calculus I, II, and III; Introduction
to Statistics; Quantitative Reasoning; Finite Mathematics;
Triogonometry; and Technical Mathematics. At the
graduate level she has taught Advanced Calculus I
and II, Complex Analysis I and II, Modern Algebra,
Abstract Algebra, Number Theory, and Teaching
Assistant Seminar. She has received the Shirley
and Marshall Reynolds Teacher of the Year Award
(2007-08), and the Phi Eta Sigma “Fabulous
Faculty Member” award.
Dr. Pupplo-Cody's current interests involve
developing online courses for the Mathematics
Department, including Algebra and Quantitative Reasoning.
She received a MU-ADVANCE Mini-Grant to write a
grant proposal to improve the retention rates of STEM students.
In this proposal, Dr. Pupplo-Cody discusses the importance of creating
a course for students who fail or withdraw from Calculus
courses. This 8-week course will attempt to help students
overcome mathematical deficiencies so that they are better
prepared to succeed in advanced mathematical courses; thus
potentially retaining students in Mathematics, Engineering,
and other STEM disciplines that require these courses for graduation.
Dr. Pupplo-Cody was successful in garnering the grant funds to develop
and test this course. She, along with Drs. Yulia Dementieva
and Joe Fuller, will pilot this strategy during the
Fall 2009 semester.
