Offered in conjunction with the
National Computational Science Institute workshop on Computational
Biology for Biology Educators
In the past few years, numerous national organizations and funding
agencies, including the MAA, AAAS, NIH and NSF, have identified the
to increase the mathematical training of biology students and to
increase the awareness of biological applications among mathematics
students. This workshop will focus on the development of courses
and materials that integrate mathematics and biology in ways that
benefit students from both disciplines.
The expected audience is faculty in the mathematical sciences.
This workshop will be run in collaboration with a National
Science Institute (NCSI) workshop for biology faculty and will feature
crossover sessions, discussions, and plenary lectures.
• Learn about the recent developments in the fields
of mathematical and computational biology;
• Discuss educational trends and strategies for
• Work through existing and develop new materials for
use in the classroom;
• Learn about high powered software programs that
ease the learning curve; and
• Learn about resources available to become more
involved in mathematical and computational biology.
Upon completing the workshop, participants will develop a syllabus,
curricular materials, or a project plan for an interdisciplinary
activity using appropriate technologies such as a specialized software
package, interactive simulation, or laboratory exercise.Return to Prep Home Page
