Abstract: Mathematical modeling is central to how the power of mathematics is harnessed to help generate new scientific knowledge. In this course students will work in teams to model the dynamics of the spread of infectious diseases using systems of differential equations. Each group will model the spread of a different pathogen. Through this course you will learn to conduct literature searchers, pose and refine research questions, use standard mathematical models, identify which models are applicable to a research question, modify a standard model to a novel situation, communicate each of these effectively in writing, and work effectively in a team. A final project will require students to combine their previous work with that of their peers to create a final, polished research article presenting their models. Writing is a fundamental part of the process of developing models and communicating results. A significant portion of this course will focus on developing fluency in scientific writing.
