Minicourses

Minicourse #2. Visual Topics in Undergraduate Complex Analysis, presented by Michael Brilleslyper, US Air Force Academy, and Michael Dorff, Brigham Young University; Part A, Wednesday, 4:45 pm–6:45 pm, and Part B, Friday, 3:30 pm–5:30 pm.

Complex analysis is a staple of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. It is a beautiful mathematical subject that unifies and extends many topics from other courses. The course readily pulls together the theories of polynomial equations, differentiation, integration, and series, while also including geometry and function theory. Unfortunately, many undergraduate courses end right where the cool stuff starts. In this minicourse, the proposers intend to expose the participants to two of the myriad of topics that are possible: (1) an introduction to minimal surfaces, and (2) the dynamics and locations of zeros of families of polynomials. Both of these topics are accessible to an audience having familiarity with the basics of complex analysis. The course is aimed at instructors of complex variables who are looking for some interesting topics for their courses, mathematicians who want to start learning something about the proposed areas, and instructors looking for potential undergraduate research projects to do with their students. Participants will need to bring their own computers with a current version of Mathematica, Maple™, or MATLAB. There will be limited support for Sage.

Minicourse #16. Mobile Mathematics—Interactive Apps for Teaching and Learning, presented by Lila Roberts, Clayton State University, and Andrew G. Bennett, Kansas State University; Part A, Wednesday, 4:45 pm– 6:45 pm, and Part B, Friday, 3:30 pm–5:30 pm.

Mobile devices have made their way into our lives and our classrooms. In this minicourse, participants will learn about various ways to integrate tablets and other mobile devices into mathematics courses. The presenters will demonstrate interactive resources that they have developed as well as other applications/materials that are ready-made and easily available. In addition, participants will learn how to use various ways to develop new and/or adapt existing resources for their face-to-face and online classrooms. Bring your own mobile device and/or a wireless capable laptop computer. – See more at: http://jointmathematicsmeetings.org/meetings/national/jmm2016/2181_minicourses#sthash.nhFLHXL6.dpuf
