Welcome to an
MAA Partnerships Physics and Mathematics
Information Page!

Partnerships runs a series of workshops that build cross-disciplinary partnerships and create interdisciplinary teaching materials. The program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation to the Mathematical Association of America, and is administered by Dr. Tina Straley and Dr. Brian Winkel (see http://science.kennesaw.edu/~mburke/partnerships/index.html for more information.)

A Partnerships workshop for faculty in Physics and Mathematics took place on June 20-25, 1999, at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. As part of this workshop, the participants created syllabi for the courses they plan to teach this year. The participants also devised 'concept questions' that check how well students understand fundamental concepts in math/physics courses. We welcome you to browse these syllabi for ideas, and to try these concept questions in your classes. You are welcome to use these concept questions, but we ask that you inform us how you used them and how successful they were. (Contact Drs. Straley or Winkel at the above link)

In addition to these syllabi, the three teams of workshop presenters have created full interdisciplinary courses combining mathematics and physics. Their materials can be found at:
