Teaching
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.

 

Course Development
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.

 

Service and Outreach
Dr. Pupplo-Cody currently serves as the undergraduate advisor for the Department of Mathematics. In addition, she served as the Interim Associate Chair of Mathematics during the 2007-08 academic year and as the Interim Director of the Center for Academic Excellence from July 2004-May 2005.

 

Dr. Pupplo-Cody is a member of the Mathematical Association of America, the Association for Women in Mathematics, and the West Virginia Academy of Science.
