Richard Stout

Professor of Mathematics

Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University


Dr. Stout focuses on areas of pure mathematics, where questions about the beautiful and abstract structures that underlie the theory of mathematics are discussed. He has done historical work on some mathematicians in early 19th-century England. He is also interested in finding ways to help prospective elementary and middle school teachers better understand the theory that supports elementary mathematics. Since its first gathering in 1977, Dr. Stout has been actively involved in the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences.
