    Dr. Victor Donnay, Bryn Mawr College, describes the link between Math and Sustainability

    Sustainability can be used to provide students with hands-on opportunities to see how the math they learn in class can connect to issues they care about in the world. Professor Victor Donnay will describe the links between math and sustainability in a senior seminar course on math modeling in which the students applied math to carry out service learning projects that greened their college and the community; an introductory level course on math and sustainability for general college students; and a two-week summer institute for secondary math and science teachers.
