Bernard L. Dillard, Science and Math, has authored a new textbook, titled Moneymatics: Where Money and Mathematics Meet. Released by Kendall Hunt Publishing Company this summer, the text teaches algebraically based mathematical content within the context of personal finance. Topics include understanding credit and credit scores; grasping the benefits of saving for retirement at an early age; visualizing money saved when a mortgage is paid off early; and choosing a stock to invest in using PEG ratios.
The textbook also helps students make sense of relevant mathematical formulas by offering Excel-based lessons in which students get practice with basic computer programming. Kendall Hunt is currently marketing the textbook to various colleges and universities across the country.
