TR  09:40 am11:10 am  OLRI 245  Chad HigdonTopaz 
*First Year Course only* We adopt a mathematical framework to better understand catastrophic phenomena crucial to human existence, including global population growth, disease immunology and epidemiology, warfare, climate change, and more. At the core of this course is an applied mathematical viewpoint. As a student applied mathematician, you will come to view mathematics not as system of formulas to be memorized and manipulated, but as a flexible and powerful toolbox of ideas that can help solve real problems in diverse disciplinary fields including biology, economics, geoscience, physics, chemistry, medicine, and more. The mathematical topics covered include differential and integral calculus of multiple variables, dimensional analysis, Fermi estimation, and introductory differential equations. For all of these topics, we place a strong emphasis on developing scientific computing and mathematical modeling skills. This course serves students who might envision focusing on mathematics in college and students who wish to have solid quantitative skills to support work in another field. Only basic high school math (through algebra and trigonometry) is required as a prerequisite. Nonetheless, even if you have extensive experience with calculus (including advanced placement or similar) you may find new and challenging material in this course because of its emphases on applications, modeling, computation, and multivariate models. For further information on calculus placement at Macalester, see: http://www.macalester.edu/academics/mscs/wheredoistart/entrycourses/ Math 135 counts towards the Natural Science and Mathematics distribution requirement. Additionally, as it carries a “Q1” designation, Math 135 partially satisfies the Quantitative Thinking general education requirement. Students enrolling in this course are required to simultaneously enroll in an argumentative writing (WA) or writing as craft (WC) course towards fulfillment of the college writing requirement.

In this course, we extend the linear model by relaxing the assumptions and requirements of the model. Standard inference for linear models requires independent, normallydistributed data. We will use generalized linear models to model nonnormal data, such as binary data or count data. We will use linear mixed models to model correlated data. Finally, we will combine these two extensions by studying and fitting generalized linear mixed models. The course will rely on statistical theory (such as maximum likelihood) but will emphasize model construction and analysis of reallife data. Examples will be drawn from a variety of fields. Prerequisites: MATH 155 AND (MATH 236 OR MATH 237) AND MATH 254.
