Participants will learn mathematical applications in criminal, civil, and constitutional law; develop curriculum for use in classes including liberal arts mathematics, mathematics for teachers, probability, statistics, and advanced electives for majors; and initiate research projects for faculty and undergraduates on legal applications of mathematics. Before the workshop, participants will study background material, including legal briefs and mathematical research notes; they will also be asked to identify student, faculty, and departmental interests at their home institutions. The on-site component will use a combination of lectures, discussions, and group projects to familiarize faculty with how mathematics is applied to legal situations and to prepare goals for the coming year. Participants will self-select into two strands. One strand will focus on integrating legal applications of mathematics into the curriculum, and one will focus on research. No prior knowledge of the topic is required, though participants should be familiar with mathematical probability and statistics.
