Modeling in the Natural Sciences: Introducing Applied Mathematics at the Sophomore Level

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This talk will describe a sophomore level applied mathematics course designed for chemistry and biology majors. Having completed Calculus II, students explored various biological models using dynamical systems, linear algebra, and differential equations. Several of the ESTEEM modules that are available through the BioQUEST Consortium (http://bioquest.org) were used as a way to explore the models at a deeper level in Excel. Students also completed paper presentations as a way to link mathematical modeling to their field of interest.
