Dr. Mattingly is a native of Owensboro, Kentucky. Dr. Mattingly attended the University of Kentucky, where he earned a BA in Mathematical Economics, a BBA in Finance, and a B.S. in Mathematics. While working on his undergrad degrees, he became part of the Undergraduate Explorers program, where he worked as an undergraduate assistant with the Calculus and College Algebra classes at UK. He continued his interest in mathematics at the University of Kentucky where he earned both his M.S. and PhD degrees. Dr. Mattingly’s field of concentration is Complex Analysis, which is like calculus with the complex number system. His dissertation topic was “Rational Approximation on Compact Nowhere Dense Sets”. While working on his graduate studies, he also participated in the Algebra Cubed program, through which he worked at Powell County High School in eastern Kentucky, helping to develop conceptually based lesson plans. He used this experience to help him in the college classroom as he continued his role as a teaching assistant at UK. By the time he graduated, he was the primary instructor for ten courses at UK ranging from freshmen level College Algebra to junior level Linear Algebra.
Outside of the classroom, Dr. Mattingly enjoys typically nerdy things like video games, board games, and computers. When he gets the chance, he also likes to get outside and enjoy nature. Additionally he tries to stay current on undergraduate education, by attending conferences and being a member of both the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Mathematical Society of America (MAA).
Dr. Mattingly started at Martin Methodist in the fall of 2012 and continues to teach a wide variety of classes. As the resident analyst, he teaches the upper level Real Analysis course, as well upper level courses such as Differential Equations and Vector Calculus. He also teaches some of the general education courses such as Developmental Math and Intermediate Algebra. Although he is the newest math faculty member, he loves working with everyone at MMC and looks forward to helping to develop the math major.
