The Interface Between ChE and Mathematics: What Do Students Really Need?
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) is conducting a major analysis of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, its goal being a set of recommendations to assist mathematics departments in curriculum development. To gather information for this analysis, a set of workshops is being hosted by MAA for partner disciplines-the engineering workshop occurred in May 2000. In this article we describe the MAA program and present the report of the chemical engineering working group, reflecting the priorities and concerns that arose in the workshop discussions. It is our hope that this document will stimulate discussion and progress in providing effective mathematics education for chemical engineering students.
