Featuring T. J. Hansen | Mathematics: A Language for Discovery and Decision Making 

This seminar focuses on how mathematics serves as a language for discovery in multi-disciplinary inquiries. Alternative mathematical models are introduced in the context of economic research questions in agriculture, taxation, business, and transportation. The expectations to align each model with its context and convey findings to audiences with varying levels of exposure to mathematics highlight the value of effective translators of mathematics to decision making in society.
