Ted McCoy, Ph.D.

Professor of Mathematics | Applied Technology Co-Chair

Dr. Ted McCoy became a faculty member of the Applied Technology Division at William Penn University in 2007. He believes in the University’s mission of placing value on every individual student. He has accomplished this by assisting with the creation of different math courses, such as Statistical Methods, Technical Math, and Math for Elementary Educators, to meet the different needs of all students pursuing their degrees. In these courses, instructors adjust classroom activities and assignments to break up math lectures and to give students a variety of paths to success in accordance with their learning abilities and styles.

Dr. McCoy also encourages students to approach him with questions or concerns regarding material during his busy and productive office hours. He makes sure he is available to all students in any math course, during a variety of times, including evenings and weekends, and once even during a blizzard!

Dr. McCoy specializes in fractals and measure theory. Outside of teaching, he enjoys researching these topics, as well as the history of mathematics and applied mathematics.
