Research interests: analysis, probability and ergodic theory. Of calculus, Morris Kline wrote, "Following hard on the adoption of the function concept came the calculus, which, next to Euclidean geometry, is the greatest creation of all of mathematics." The annual prize for the best paper published in the IMA Journal of Management Mathematics is open for entries. Students will be selected based on their academic record, statement of interest, and two faculty recommendations.

A scientific theory is empirical, [nb 17] [83] and is always open to falsification if new evidence is presented. But think also of the individuals and what they can derive through upward mobility, income growth for families, and access to opportunity. The middle school and high school standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges. With this combination of resources, the Center is reevaluating and reforming introductory level science and mathematics courses, establishing new practices for K-12 science teacher preparation, and building infrastructure with teachers, schools, and administrators throughout the state.

Teachers and researchers devise strategies that enable teachers to continually mature in their craft. Teacher professional development can be designed to successfully address the needs of school systems, their teachers, and the students in those systems. These schools serve a geographical region, busing in students from a number of high schools to participate in advanced SMT coursework for part of the day. Nurture interest and excitement in STEM for mentor and teacher participants.

If children are to learn science and become scientifically literate, educators must choose appropriate science content and experiences to match children’s cognitive capacities at different stages of their development. Build It., a hands-on engineering program for middle school girls, specifically Girl Scouts. The program is also open to students who will go on to pursue doctoral studies in computer science, mathematics, or statistics. The theme for 2009 is Technologies for bridging the digital-physical divide: sensing the environment.

The Simons Foundation has launched the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain (SCGB). The document includes standards related to climate change and evolution, which has motivated opposition in conservative states. Careers information about jobs in the environment can be found on our Environmental work and animal care/behaviour webpage and information about patent work in on the Information, Patent and Library page. The study suggests that "the math-gender gap, where it occurs, is due to sociocultural factors that differ among countries, and that these factors can be changed."
