Is Dr. Sheldon Cooper your favorite character on TV?  Want to meet some like-minded people who are also excited about mathematics and its real-life applications?  Join us at DelVal on Saturday, Nov. 14 for the fall 2015 meeting of the Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware (EPADEL) section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).  Hosted by the University’s Department of Mathematics and Physics, the meeting will be held in the Life Sciences Building on the main campus from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Attendees are encouraged to register in advance online.  The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in mathematics and will include presentations by students and faculty as well as opportunities to network with others in the field.

“Delaware Valley University is honored to be hosting this meeting,” said Dr. Jimmy Mopecha, assistant professor of mathematics and lead organizer of the event.  "These meetings provide opportunities for people in the field to learn from each other, network and work together to discuss challenges.  We encourage anyone who is interested in the mathematical sciences to join us.”

The MAA is the largest professional society that focuses on making mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level.  Members include: university, college, and high school teachers; graduate and undergraduate students; pure and applied mathematicians; computer scientists; statisticians; and many others in academia, government, business and industry.  The mission of the MAA is "to advance the mathematical sciences, especially at the collegiate level."  Core interests include: effective education at all levels, professional development, public policy, advocacy and public appreciation.
