Dr. Christopher Engledowl is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Curriculum & Instruction.

Dr. Engledowl completed his doctoral degree in Learning, Teaching & Curriculum with a major in Mathematics Education and an emphasis in Quantitative Research Methods in 2017 at the University of Missouri. His dissertation, titled Secondary Mathematics Teachers’ Informal Inferential Reasoning: The Role of Knowledge Structures for Measures of Center, Spread and Shape, focused on nine mathematics teachers’ informal inferential reasoning and knowledge of students and teaching within that context. His bachelor’s and master’s degrees are from the University of Arkansas.
