The Learnables: Mathematical Education in a Liberal Arts Curriculum

August 5 - August 6

Although many strides have been made in reviving the humanities portion of a liberal education, mathematics and the sciences have lagged behind. Many obstacles lie in the way of programmatic change – ancient vs. modern math; the lack of a historical guide to integration of the sciences into a liberal arts curriculum; the external expectations of colleges and parents. To help those ready to engage in this labor, our symposium will bring together theoretical and practical experts in liberal approaches to mathematics education, ancient and modern, to help us understand the difficulties and recognize opportunities. 

The presentations at the symposium include a talk by Dean of Fellows Dr. Jeffrey Lehman on the tradition.
