MAA North Central Section Summer Seminar Conceptual Climate Models, July 22-24, 2013
Welcome to the 2013 MAA North Central Section Summer Seminar!
MAA North Central Section Seminar this year is on the Mathematics
of Planet Earth - Conceptual Climate Models.
in the seminar will meet during July 22-24, 2013 at Augsburg
College in Minneapolis, MN. The focus for the seminar will be
the study of mathematical models of the climate of planet earth.
The material in the proposed Short Course will be accessible to a
broad range of faculty and scholars, whether they are interested
in teaching at the high-school, undergraduate or graduate level,
or whether they are interested in understanding the basic
conceptual models from which research at a variety of levels of
model complexity can grow. The seminar will include a mix of
lecture and hands-on lab work.
topic in this seminar lends itself to classroom use.
Participants will be provided with modules designed for core
math classes at a variety of levels. The North Central Section
and the organizers hope that this seminar will open the door for
more mathematicians and educators to become involved in the
exciting area of climate mathematics.
