BMX 100: Frontiers in Biomathematics
Offered Fall 2015. The gateway course for the Biomathematical Sciences Concentration, where students work in activities involving data collection and modeling based on ongoing faculty research. See More

BMX 110: Biomath Bootcamp
ffered Fall 2015. This 2 credit Laboratory must be taken in conjunction with BMX 100. This is an intensive introduction to modeling life sciences processes and systems using the Matlab software package.  The course meets M-W 7:15-9:15 for 8 sessions. Taught by Sarah Hews (Hampshire)  with coordination by Denise Lello (Smith)

MTH/CSC 205: Modeling in the Sciences
Offered Spring 2016. Ileana Streinu T-Th 3-4:50. This course integrates the use of mathematics and computers for modeling various phenomena drawn from the natural and social sciences with special emphasis on the life sciences. See More

MTH 292: Data Science
Offered Fall 2015. This course provides a practical foundation for students to compute with data, by participating in the entire data analysis cycle (from forming a statistical question, data acquisition, cleaning, transforming, modeling and interpretation). See More

MTH 353: Applied Algebraic Combinatorics
DNA and RNA can each be represented as a sequence of letters (nucleotides).  This course will focus on these combinatorial properties of these sequences, studying different kinds of permutation groups, their generators, and their Cayley graphs. See More
