advisors to the nation on science engineering and medicine in their 2003 report BIO2010 Transforming Undergraduate Education for Future Research Biologists Given the profound changes in the nature of biology and how biological research is performed and communicated each institution of higher education should reexamine its current courses and teaching approaches as described in this report to see if they meet the needs of today s undergraduate biology students Those selecting the new approaches should consider the importance of building a strong foundation in mathematics physical and information sciences to prepare students for research that is increasingly interdisciplinary in character Students interested in participating in the UBM program should begin by registering for the one credit course BIOL 285 Quantitative Biology Symposium in their first semester Each week a different professor will discuss his or her work at the interface of math and biology Topics may include everything from human medicine and genetics to ecology and evolution This informal seminar complete with pizza and soft drinks is an excellent introduction to the professors and other students in the UBM program After their first year students may join a participating laboratory to work on a research project Most of the funding for the UBM program is to pay undergraduate students for their work during the academic year and during the summer In the second and subsequent years UBM students will have the opportunity to take new courses developed specifically for this program Upon graduation UBM students will be exceptionally well prepared for interesting and rewarding jobs in industry or for continuing their research careers in top graduate schools Student Testimonials New fields are generated when you combine topics together and thus new ground to explore I am an explorer and a creator at heart and I have found the combination of

the 2016 information Have a nice summer SMaRT is a National Science Foundation supported two week summer program at Texas A M University It is intended to facilitate interest in mathematics of advanced high school students High school students of age 14 18 who are US citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply The camp will provide an intensive learning environment in mathematics where high school students will learn not only useful mathematical facts but also how to approach mathematical problems prove mathematical statements and write the results Eligibility High school students grades 8 through 12 in Spring of age 14 through 18 are eligible US citizenship or permanent residency is required Capacity The camp is small In 2009 it had 20 students In 2010 through 2013 20 new and 8 returning students were admitted yearly Some of the returning students are admitted as junior counselors Undergraduate counselors are assigned to each group of five students Topics The main topics to be considered for the new class will revolve as in the previous years around number theory combinatorics and algebra Some important applications will also be addressed e g coding and logical circuits A more advanced topic will be offered to the returning students in the past years these were Knot Theory and Combinatorial Geometry to be decided for 2013 Structure of the program Each morning except Sunday a lecture will be given for the new class which will introduce students to a variety of interrelated topics of number theory algebra combinatorics and their applications At a later time a lecture will be given for the class of returning students The lectures will only provide introductions and pointers while most of technical work will be done by students under counselors guidance when solving the daily sets of problems Group
