Tra, Yolande V.; Evans, Irene M. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2010
"BIO2010" put forth the goal of improving the mathematical educational background of biology students. The analysis and interpretation of microarray high-dimensional data can be very challenging and is best done by a statistician and a biologist working and teaching in a collaborative manner. We set up such a collaboration and designed a course on…

Desjardins, Steven G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008
In this paper we describe an interdisciplinary course on dynamics that is appropriate for nonscience majors. This course introduces ideas about mathematical modeling using examples based on pendulums, chemical kinetics, and population dynamics. The unique emphasis for a nonmajors course is on chemical reactions as dynamical systems that do more…

Mayer, Victor J.; Fortner, Rosanne – School Science and Mathematics, 1986
Stamps were used in a study which assumed that the frequency with which topics (in this case the water environment and its characteristics) were depicted on stamps would be a reflection of the interest that society as a whole held for that topic. Implications for science teaching are addressed. (JN)
