RIAlity
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a

How and why we do mathematical proofs
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009/10 The aim of this short unit is to motivate students to understand why we might want to do proofs (why proofs are important and how they can help us) and to help students with some of the relatively routine aspects of doing proofs. In particular, the student will learn the following: * proofs can help you to really see why a result is true; * problems that are easy to state can be

SAMS - Rocio Garay
Rocio Garay, a sophomore chemical engineering major from Cleveland, attended Carnegie Mellon's Summer Academy for Mathematics and Science (SAMS) as a rising high school junior. SAMS is a program designed to increase the number of outstanding college-bound students from diverse backgrounds who pursue education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. She reflects on her time in the program and how it helped her develop more confidence in pursuing a career in engineering.

6.042J Mathematics for Computer Science (SMA 5512) (MIT)
This is an introductory course in Discrete Mathematics oriented toward Computer Science and Engineering. The course divides roughly into thirds: Fundamental concepts of Mathematics: definitions, proofs, sets, functions, relations. Discrete structures: modular arithmetic, graphs, state machines, counting. Discrete probability theory. This course was also taught as part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) programme as course number SMA 5512 (Mathematics for Computer Science). Contributors Srin

18.338J Infinite Random Matrix Theory (MIT)
In this course on the mathematics of infinite random matrices, students will learn about the tools such as the Stieltjes transform and Free Probability used to characterize infinite random matrices.

Workshop 3: Learning to Share Perspectives
With Dr. Carne Barnett.Â Often teachers complain that they do not have ample opportunity to talk with colleagues about their studentsâ€™ mathematical reasoning. In this workshop, you will learn about professional development based on the discussion of cases in mathematics teaching. Dr. Barnett describes this case approach, and a long-term teacher group is shown

Algebra
InterMath is a professional development effort designed to support teachers in becoming better mathematics educators. It focuses on building teachers' mathematical content knowledge through mathematical investigations that are supported by technology. InterMath includes a workshop component and materials to support instructors. For each of the following problems, consider how you would pose the same problem to your students. Would the wording need to change? Would you need to include more pictur

Elementary Partial Differential Equations and Applications
This book grew out of a two-quarter sequence of undergraduate courses offered at the University of California (UCSB), for science majors, engineers and mathematicians. These courses along with a two-quarter sequence on ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and dynamical systems constitute the applied mathematics courses for the Program in Scientific Computations, a joint program between the mathematics department and the College of Engineering at UCSB.
