Models and Data

Coordinator: Associate Professor Paula Russo∙∙ (Mathematics)

This minor emphasizes the interplay between theoretical abstraction formulated in a mathematical model and data obtained from measurements in the real world. The minor gives the student an opportunity to study the construction of models and the analysis of data.

Course requirements:

Mathematics majors who automatically satisfy the calculus requirement are required to take two sequential laboratory courses in one of the physical sciences or two related introductory courses, together with one upper-level laboratory course in biology, engineering, or one of the social sciences.
