For the past 32 years, Larry Cammack has helped his students grasp difficult mathematics concepts. The professor emeritus of mathematics officially retires from his university post Aug. 31.
Cammack joined the faculty in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science as an assistant professor in 1972. He climbed the faculty ranks and became a full professor in 1993.
During his tenure, Cammack taught both undergraduate and graduate courses dealing with subjects such as Modern Algebra I, Business Calculus, Introduction to Computing II, Introduction to Combinatorics, Discrete Mathematics, Calculus and Analytical Geometry II.
He kept abreast of the latest developments in his field through participation in a number of professional organizations and research activities. This includes serving as a journal referee for “Mathematics Magazine,” a publication of the Mathematical Association of America and the “Missouri Journal of Mathematics.” He was also involved in the American Mathematical Society and held international memberships in organizations such as the Association for Computing Machinery and Sigma-Xi- The Scientific Research Society.
Beyond the classroom, Cammack was involved in university service with the Department of Mathematics and the College of Arts and Sciences. He served on the college’s Curriculum Committee and Promotion and Tenure Committee, which he chaired.
Cammack studied mathematics at Phillips University, Enid, OK, where he earned a bachelor’s degree, as well as Kansas State University, Manhattan, where he received his master’s and doctoral degrees.
Before coming to CMSU, Cammack was an instructor at K-State for six years, and spent a year teaching at Culver Stockton College in Canton, MO.
