The application deadline is March 10, 2012.

Join the dozens of faculty at nearly 30 institutions from University of
Maine Farmington to Cal State East Bay who have successfully used "The
Math You Need, When You Need It," an NSF-Funded program to help
introductory geoscience faculty support their student's quantitative
skills. We are hosting a workshop July 26-28, 2012 in Seattle. All
participant costs will be covered.

What is The Math You Need When You Need It?

The Math You Need, When You Need It is a series of stand-alone online
modules that help students learn basic mathematical concepts essential
to success in introductory geoscience courses including density, unit
conversions, trigonometry, and rearranging equations and more. The
modules have been extensively classroom tested.  Learn more about how
the modules are being used at

More Information About the Workshop

The workshop will be held at Highline Community College near Seattle,
July 26-28, 2012.  Faculty from across the country will gather to
address the advantages and challenges of teaching introductory
geoscience quantitatively. During the workshop, you will design a plan
for incorporating The Math You Need in your own (pre-existing)
introductory geoscience course. Faculty members who have used TMYN will
help lead the workshop and facilitate collaboration among participants
with similar interests. The workshop will begin the evening of Thursday,
July 26 and conclude Saturday, July 28 after lunch.  We'll end at a
reasonable time on Saturday so that those of you who wish to extend your
stay and explore the Pacific Northwest on your own time may do so.

All participant costs -- including airfare, transportation while at the
workshop, and room and board -- are covered by collaborative grants from
