Some readers will know that I have been thinking for a year or so about a course on Mathematics for Sustainability to teach at PSU early next year. I’ve written regularly about this at my Points of Inflection blog, for instance here, here and here.
The official proposal for the course is wending its way through the Faculty Senate approval process. Assuming all goes according to plan, the course will be on the books this fall, and I will offer it for the first time in Fall 2014.
I’ve created a website for this course-to-be at http://sites.psu.edu/mathforsust/. It’s pretty much of a skeleton right now, but I plan to fill it out over the year so that it becomes a full-fledged resource for the course by next year. So check back regularly.
