Courses: Intro to Math & Sustainability (MATHB151001)

Spring 2012

Class Number: 2017
The world faces many sustainability challenges: climate change, energy, over-population, natural resource depletion. Using techniques of mathematical modeling including dynamical systems and bifurcation theory (tipping points), we will study quantitative aspects of these problems. No advanced mathematics beyond high school mathematics (pre-calculus) is required.
Div: II & Q; Approach: Quantitative Methods (QM);
This course is part of a 360 that offers a multi-disciplinary
investigation of urban and educational policies and implementation
issues that are crucial to issues of urban sustainability, while
mathematical modeling provides frameworks to examine the evolution and
current state of cities in terms of their built environments, their
ecological footprints, and their educational systems. Students must
register for all three course CITY B241, EDUC B268, MATH B151, and one
additional course outside the 360 cluster. Enrollment Limited to 15.
To be considered for this course, students must preregister and
complete this questionnaire
This questionnaire must be completed and submitted to the instructors
no later than by the end of Friday, November 4, 2011 (midnight).
Incomplete or late submissions cannot be considered.
