Debra L. Hydorn PKAL and MAA have collaborated over the past several months to identify programs integrating the life sciences and the mathematical sciences. This is an ongoing project, and further examples of interesting programs are sought.
David M. Bressoud, Lynn A. Steen Authors describe the wide range of activities and publications within the MAA (Mathematical Association of America) that emphasize three broader categories of connections important to their community:
connections to and from other disciplines
connections within the mathematical sciences
connections to the needs of students served by mathematics departments, majors and non-majors.
Arnold Ostebee The mission of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) is "to advance the mathematical sciences, especially at the collegiate level." This note provides brief descriptions of two of the MAA's national professional development programs that support leadership development.
The experience of the mathematics department at the United States Military Academy illustrates how to integrate a comprehensive faculty development program into departmental efforts to reform the curriculum and serve larger institutional goals for student learning.
