Website and/or Calendar Links
The MSTE Office is turning twenty-five in 2018! To celebrate, we've scheduled some extra-special MSTE Friday Lunch guest speakers this semester - former MSTE employees and partners.
Debra Woods will be the MSTE Friday Lunch Guest Speaker on on Friday, April 20th.
Join us for her talk "Three Mathematicians Walked into a Bar" from noon to 1 p.m.
NetMath is a successful online computer-based mathematics program based on the Calculus & Mathematica (C&M) project created by mathematicians Jerry Uhl, Horacio Porta, and Bill Davis. The C&M courseware was born out of the early calculus reform movement, which coincidently coincided with the launch of the powerful computer algebra system, Mathematica. This talk will discuss the authors’ thoughts on teaching calculus, and how NetMath has partnered with MSTE over the past 25 years.
