The Math SIG aims to be a community of practice for teachers of mathematics for engineers. We want to be able to examine the dichotomy of mathematics courses. On the one hand, there is a mathematical need for rigor that calls for teaching by a mathematician. On the other, there is a need to be able to model mathematically and connect the material with individual engineering disciplines, which is best taught by an engineer.

With monthly discussions, we want to be able to bring these two camps closer together, so that each becomes stronger in teaching the other side.

As a practical goal for the SIG, we would like to begin the creation of a set of resources that will provide instructors with non-trivial examples of topics in mathematics, applied to specific branches of engineering.

More SIGs

Design Education / Design Communication

Chair: Grant McSorley, Jason Foster

To foster the creation of a community of practice surrounding engineering design education in Canada. This will provide a setting for the discussion, evaluation and development of strategies, tools and methods for teaching engineering design and supporting students in learning engineering through design.

Developing Engineering Education Research Capacity

Chair: Janice Miller-Young

To enhance the capacity for engineering education research in Canada.
