Professor of Mathematics Dr. Ken Constantine has been awarded the 2015 Indiana Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics.
Constantine was recognized for care to students, his willingness to provide extra courses which led to an international award for Taylor student Levi Boxell, and for his contributions to statistical education.
Constantine, who joined the Taylor University faculty in 2003, holds a Ph.D. in Mathematical Statistics from Purdue University, an M.S. in Mathematical Statistics from Purdue University, and a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Eastern Nazarene College.
Prior to joining the Taylor faculty, Constantine served the faculties of Eastern Nazarene College, Cornell University, Point Loma Nazarene College, and the University of New Hampshire.
His list of courses taught includes: Algebra, Finite Math, Pre-Calculus, Business Statistics, Advanced Statistical Methods, Calculus I and II, Multivariate and Advanced Calculus, Geometry, Combinatorics, Abstract Algebra, Real Variables, Intermediate Mechanics, Mathematical Methods for Physics, Multivariate and Nonparametric Statistics, Bayesian Methods and Decision Theory, and Linear Statistical Models.
During his 33-year teaching career, Constantine has received numerous awards for teaching excellence. He holds membership in the Mathematical Association of America, the American Statistical Association, and the Association of Christians in Mathematical Sciences.
The Indiana Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of Section members who have been identified as extraordinary teachers in the mathematical sciences and whose teaching effectiveness has been shown to have had influence beyond their own institutions.
