New Multi-Disciplinary Courses

The most significant new courses being developed are the Mathematics of Fairness and the Digital Revolution, both under the direction of Joe Malkevitch. Malkevitch is teaching the Mathematics of Fairness course this spring at York College. Faculty at other Consortium institutions have expressed interest in teaching the Mathematics of Fairness course next year. These faculty are going to be involved in preparing exercises and additional written material for this course. Materials for both courses are expected to evolve into texts.

Development Fund awards supported several other new course development efforts, such as "Mathematics Across the Disciplines" at Old Westbury and a quantitatively oriented survey course about the environment at C.W. Post. Stony Brook introduced a new minor in quantitative methods in the social sciences with two new courses in quantitative modeling. Several courses are being developed by PIs (without Development Fund awards) such as two new quantitative modeling courses at Dowling, one based totally around spreadsheets. Progress on new computer science/mathematics courses did not occur because a key co-PI in computer science has been unavailable this year.

Developing new courses from scratch is a daunting task. Some groups of faculty from two or more different Consortium institutions are starting to talk about combining forces to create new courses, and we anticipate these discussions will begin to bear fruit next year.
