From Data Science to BioCalculus: Transforming Undergraduate Math Curricula at Every Level
Undergraduate mathematics curricula must respond to a variety of student demographics, academic interests and workforce ambitions. In the UCI Department of Mathematics, this includes service courses like BioCalculus, transition courses like Intro to Abstract Math, and concentration tracks, like Data Science. We describe three grant-funded efforts to revamp critical UCI Mathematics courses and curricular pathways. All of these efforts require significant interdepartmental and inter-campus collaborations that respond to changing curricular and workforce needs for our student learners. A description of these efforts and their potential to transform the student math experience is highlighted in this talk.
