Western Kentucky University's Math Department is making an addition to its formula for student success. Math faculty member Bruce Kessler will host Math Matters: Why Do I Need to Know This? on WKU's campus cable system. The half-hour program will show how the mathematics being taught in their General Math, College Algebra, and Math for Elementary Teachers courses is applied in the real world. The show will feature three segments focusing on common applications for the types of mathematics that WKU students may be facing in their classes. The show will air during regular fall and spring semesters on campus channel 12 at 5 p.m. Wednesdays with replays at 11 p.m. Wednesdays and 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays. Portions of the program will also be downloadable here on the show's webpage. This program is being produced through the facilities of WKYU-PBS, and is supported by a Provost's Initiative for Excellence grant, the Ogden College of Science and Engineering, the Department of Mathematics, and Housing and Residence Life. For questions regarding the show, contact Bruce Kessler at or at 745-4449.
