Mathematics Across the Community College Curriculum

Mathematics Across the Community College Curriculum

Most people might be aware that mathematics finds its way into a number of instructional programs and courses that are most decidedly not focused on this important discipline. Math is present in a wide range of courses, ranging from fashion design to sociology. Led by The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) along with a number of community colleges (including Miami Dade College), the goal of this particular effort is "to create a mathematically literate society that ensures a workforce equipped to compete in a technologically advanced global economy." The site is divided into several primary sections, including "Courses and Projects", "Institutes and Conferences", and "Books and Resources". Educators and other interested parties will want to head immediately to the "Courses and Projects" area, as they can look through materials created to enhance the mathematically-informed arrangements of such courses as anthropology, English, urban planning, and policy studies. Additionally, there is a section of the site that contains links to dozens of helpful online materials of note that will assist faculty members and others.
