The Center for Mathematics Teaching and Learning (CMTL) at DeSales University will present Credit Card Mathematics, the next event in the Math Around Us Series. The presentation will be held 7:00 p.m., Monday, February 15, in the Hurd Room of the DeSales University Center.
The program is open to the public free of charge. No pre-registration is required.
The presentation will focus on how to solve credit card related problems. Topics include changing rules, fluctuating interest rates, and confusing policies that make reading the monthly statement baffling and complicated.
Introduced during the 2009-2010 academic year with Mr. James Rubillo serving as the center’s director, CMTL offers activities to explore the uses of mathematics in our daily lives and address the trends and practical applications of mathematics.
The CMTL is a partnership which unites teachers, schools, corporations and opinion leaders throughout the Lehigh Valley who share a common goal: to ensure that K-12 students receive the best possible preparation in mathematics.
According to Dr. Karen Walton, provost and vice president for academic affairs at DeSales University, the Center for Mathematics Teaching and Learning provides a setting in which participants can explore the uses of mathematics in their daily lives.
“The DeSales Center for Mathematics Teaching and Learning was created to ensure that K-12 students receive the best possible preparation in mathematics, as they seek their place in the modern world,” said Walton.
