Location:  3096 East Hall (5:15 PM to 6:30 PM)

Title:  Special Panel: International Students and Mathematics Education

Abstract:   The number of international, especially Chinese, students in undergraduate mathematics courses enrolled in public universities in the United States has been increasing dramatically in recent years, so that it is now large enough at the University of Michigan to significantly change the student demand for and demographics in courses in which they enroll. In this panel we will explore the impact of this enrollment from several viewpoints: how these courses are taught; the effect on domestic students of a large international student presence in classes; how courses are scheduled; the effect on departmental resources; how these students' international background affects their ability to participate in research and related activities; and how these students fit in to the department's and university's mission and goals.

Panelists are Christopher Cunningham (formerly of U. Illinois, Urbana Champaign), Mattias Jonsson (U. Michigan), Sarah Kitchen (U. Michigan), David Manderscheid (Ohio State U.), Bryan Mosher (U. Minnesota) and Yang Wang (Michigan State U.)
