Education Workshop: Over the Fence -- Mathematicians and Biologists Talk About Bridging the Curricular Divide
Host:
The Ohio State University
Location:
Columbus, OH
Date(s):
June 1, 2007 - June 2, 2007
Abstract/Description:

This conference will bring together mathematics and biology educators who have developed successful biology-in-mathematics curricula with those who wish to develop such programs. The major goals of the conference are:

  • Understand how to incorporate applications of and connections with biology into the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, and conversely.
  • Understand how to accomplish this in different types of institutions, from small liberal arts colleges to large research universities.  We will address opportunities for and benefits of, as well as barriers and impediments to, cross-disciplinary curriculum development in each of these types of institutions.
  • Stimulate creation and revision of curricula that integrate mathematics and biology, the results of which will be published in MBI conference proceedings.
  • Initiate and foster a continuing learning community

The conference will consist of plenary and invited talks by educators who have been successful in bridging mathematics and biology in the undergraduate curriculum.  Conference participants will consist of collaborative pairs of mathematics and biology educators who have plans to pursue such a project at their own institutions.
