A Cross-Discipline Modeling Capstone Experience
Frazier, Marian L.; LoFaro, Thomas; Pillers Dobler, Carolyn
PRIMUS, v28 n3 p266-282 2018
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the American Statistical Association (ASA) have both updated and revised their curriculum guidelines. The guidelines of both associations recommend that students engage in a "capstone" experience, be exposed to applications, and have opportunities to communicate mathematical and statistical analysis, among other recommendations. In this article, we describe a mathematics and statistics capstone course, implemented at a small liberal arts college. We provide evidence that this course accomplishes the goals set forth by the MAA and ASA. We include guidance for other institutions on implementing a similar course.
