Faculty Seminar

The next meeting of the faculty seminar will take place on Thursday, November 20, in YR 320, starting at 4:00 p.m. The speaker will be Dr. Stanley Max, who will give a lecture on A geostatistical study of the Towson University campus: A tool for teaching mathematics and statistics.

Abstract: Using the mapping software ArcGIS and georeferenced maps, the speaker has plotted coordinates of every building on the Towson University campus and mapped them on a Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection. After briefly explaining the fundamentals of this projection method, the speaker shows how it can be used to exemplify in two dimensions some fundamental concepts taught in introductory college algebra, precalculus, and statistics such as distance measurements, mean, and standard deviation.
