Eric Marland, Jon Jacobsen
July 31-August 6, 2005
Harvey Mudd College
Offered in conjunction with the National Computational Science
Institute workshop on Computational Biology for Biology Educators
Registration Fee $300 by June 7,
In the past few years, numerous national organizations and funding
agencies, including the MAA, AAAS, NIH and NSF, have identified the
need 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
Computational 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 implementing
- work through existing and develop new materials for use in the
- learn about high-powered software programs that ease the learning
- 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.
