BaMBA Conference at San Jose State University

 BaMBA is a one-day meeting aimed at creating a fairly informal atmosphere to explore the role of mathematics in biology. Going beyond traditional applied mathematics, the topics include applications of algebraic, topological, statistical and computational methods. Our goal is to encourage dialogue between researchers and students from different disciplines in an atmosphere that promotes the open exchange of ideas and viewpoints. We expect a day full of enticing discussions!

Participation in BaMBA is free and open to everyone, but registration is required. Attendance is limited to 100. The registration deadline is Friday, October 9th, 2015. Undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs involved in mathematical and computational investigations of biological systems are invited to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.


Having Trouble Enrolling In Calculus?

Math 19, 30P, 30, 31 & 71 all  have required co-requisite workshops. There might be an issue with the workshop you are trying to add

Repeating a lower division Math Class more than twice

At the request of colleagues in Physics and Engineering, the Math Department voted on a new policy for students registering in a lower division math course for the third (or more) time. There is a special form entitled Repeating a Course for More Than Two Times Petition(pdf) which the instructor must sign for the student to be allowed to register in a course for the third (or more) time.  The Math Department is now asking their instructors teaching lower division math courses during the regular school year not sign such forms and let students know that they are only allowed to take a course for the third time during the summer where they pay the full cost and they are less likely to be taking up a space from a student who is taking the course for the first time.
