SPECIAL TOPIC COURSE FALL 2021

MATH 3991 - Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases
 
A lot of public health media releases speak of ‘what the models are showing’. What are these models? How are they made? Can we trust them? In this course we will explore answers to these questions through study of different types of mathematical models of disease progression. We will explore and discuss questions that mathematical models are good at answering, and what kind of questions are they not suited to.
 
Prerequisites: MATH 1121 and MATH 2221.  
 
[Note: MATH 2121 and credit in a Statistics course are also highly recommended.]

GeoComputing

Geocomputing is an exciting new interdisciplinary BA program being offered at Mount Allison. Geocomputing is a joint major BA program that will give students expertise to study and understand spatial dimensions of social and environmental problems.  It is an applied program that combines theory and practice of computing and geography, and offers students a new way to look at the world.  

Interest in computer science has increased in recent years, with many students hoping to use their computer science skills to enhance another area in which they are interested.  Geocomputing offers students a unique way to combine geographical and environmental skills with training in computer science.

Registering for calculus

2021 onward

  • MATH 1151 (Applied Calculus) will be offered
  • MATH 1111 (Calculus I) will not be offered

Students may use MATH 1151 as a prerequisite for MATH 1121 (Calculus II) any MtA program that currently requires MATH 1111 has agreed to accept MATH 1151 in its place.

MATH 1151-A and 1151-B will have online lectures (due to COVID-19 room capacity restrictions). Students are also required to register for a lab section. Lab section 115L-7 is the ONLY lab being offered online. All other labs will be in-person on campus. See schedule below.

Math 1151 labs Fall 2021

In-person labs

  • 115L-1 (T 2:30-3:50)
  • 115L-2 (T 4:00-5:20)
  • 115L-3 (W 2:30-3:50)
  • 115L-4 (W 4:00-5:20)
  • 115L-5 (Th 2:30-3:50)
  • 115L-6 (Th 4:00-5:20)

Scheduled Online lab

  • 115L-7 (Fr 2:30-3:50)

     

    Math Assessment Test

     

    Students registering in MATH 1151 are required to pass a Math Assessment Test (each student has two attempts). 

    We encourage students to complete the Math Assessment Test online during the summer.  Generally, students who struggle with the Math Assessment Test, also struggle with calculus. Students who do not pass the Math Assessment Test after two attempts can take MATH 1011  to help prepare them for success in calculus.

    If you have any questions, please contact the mathematics program advisor at math@mta .
