Brenda J. Latka, associate professor of mathematics, was selected to participate last month in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s Advanced Placement examinations in calculus.

Pursuing academic interests such as mathematical logic and combinatorics, Latka’s published research includes work with Lafayette students. Last semester, she taught Applied Statistics and Linear Algebra with Applications courses. Latka earned a Ph.D. from Rutgers University.

Through the Advanced Placement Program, high school students take college-level courses and, based on their exam performance, receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.

“The AP reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that America has to offer,” says Lee Jones, AP executive director of the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Brenda Latka.”
