Sociology & Biology of Human Disease

The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) has compiled a collection of mathematics resources related to various subjects and disciplines. �Math Across the Community College Curriculum� is the title of the collection, which includes great math resources and applications for educators and students alike. Susanne Bohmer and Jenny McFarland of Edmonds Community College created this particular resource. In it they use principles and examples from the fields of sociology and biology to enhance the learning experience of students in a math class. The �Course Summary� provides detailed information about the course, as well as goals and learning objectives for students. �Generating Hypotheses� is an exercise for students centered around regional child mortality rates. There are two worksheets for students to complete in conjunction with this exercise. The worksheets provide definitions and example equations to help students understand the underlying mathematical principles of the exercise.
