Abstract: Exploring Mathematical Modeling in Biology Through Case Studies and Experimental Activities, written collaboratively by a mathematician and biologist, provides supporting materials for a course taken simultaneously by students majoring in the mathematical sciences and those in the life sciences. The text is designed to actively engage students in the process of modeling through a collection of case studies and wet labs connecting mathematical models to real data. This work emanated from a course that we co-taught at St. Olaf College. In this session we will provide a brief overview of this course and discuss key factors that supported the development of this course, continuing challenges, and how this model might be adapted at various institutions.
