Mathematical Sciences and Their Applications Throughout the Curriculum: Models of Innovation (Part I of II)

Part II will be presented at the MAA Meeting on Thursday, July 16, 12:45 PM-2:35 PM. Registration information for the MAA Meeting can be found at

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 2110

Increasingly complex scientific, technical, and engineering problems, coupled with new workforce demands of business and industry, have led in recent years to calls for undergraduate education to better reflect the needs of society. Recognizing its special role in responding to these calls for reform, the mathematical sciences community has been engaged in a variety of innovative projects that seek to infuse the study of the mathematical sciences and their applications throughout the undergraduate curriculum.

In this minisymposium, the speakers will present examples of course and curriculum models that illustrate a number of innovations including compelling interdisciplinary approaches, new applications of enabling educational technologies, and the development of introductory courses targeting the important non-major audience.
