Abstract for the conference program

Mathematically underprepared, unsuccessful, and unmotivated undergraduates need to experience success in math, begin to think mathematically, and be aware of the relevance of math to real life experiences, as well as to science, technology, engineering, etc. We will share some approaches that do just that, by drawing examples from math, biology, automotive engineering, medical tests, and court cases
