International Association for Quantitative Finance( IAQF) announced that Rutgers, UC Berkeley, and Baruch College NY share the honor of having the three winning student teams in the 2017 IAQF Academic Affiliate Membership Student Competition. MSMF's ACE team of six students -- Zongsheng Sun (team captain), Lingfeng LiHaidong GuXinrong SongLin Du, and Bowen Long were mentored by Sunita Jagtiani, our Director for Career Services Management, and Triet Pham, Teaching Assistant Professor of Mathematics.

Rutgers undergraduates took the top two individual spots, and placed second and third in the team competition, in the Garden State Mathematics Competition.   Terence Coelho and Elliot Glazer placed first and second respectively, while in the team competition Rutgers took 2nd place (Maine Christos, Roberta Shapiro, and Patrick Chen), and 3rd place (Terence Coelho and Elliot Glazer)

Starting with the 2001 Academic Year, the math department expects to offer two new courses:

  • 640:336, Differential Equations in Biology (F'01).
  • 640:338, Discrete and Probabilistic Models in Biology (S'02).

The new course Math 336 will have Ordinary Differential Equations (640:244 or 640:252) as a prerequisite.
The course Math 338 will keep the old 338 prerequisites of linear algebra and probability.

In the future, students will be able to get credit for both 336 and 338, and both courses will be required for Biomath majors. (But please note: if you take 338 before the 2001/2002 year, you will need to obtain special permission to have both courses count, because 338 in the Spring of 2001 is the same course as what will become 336.)

For further information, please look at the web page for the Spring 01 338 course; this course covered the material which is expected to be covered in the new 336 course.
