Modeling Across The Curriculum

Tony Starfield has earned a reputation as the best modeling instructor in the world. Starfield constantly refines group activities that one student describes as “partly fun mind-benders and partly challenging real-world conservation scenarios.” Starfield’s illustrious career has included hands-on contributions to engineering, applied mathematics, and biological modeling, and he brings those experiences to the classroom.  Tony Starfield will be the Fall Instructor for  CSCI 190 – How to Model it and CSCI 390 Seminar in Modeling for the Natural and Social Sciences
