Math and biology meet

In the latest issue of International Innovation, UT Arlington mathematics professor Hristo Kojouharov and biology professor James Grover described the motivation behind their latest teaching program which integrates biology and mathematics, thus enabling undergraduates to take an interdisciplinary approach to their research projects. The program, Undergraduate Training in Theoretical Ecology Research (UTTER) is National Science Foundation funded with research focusing on mathematical ecology and epidemiology.

Elections to bring new faces

When the dust settles after Tuesday's general election, Tarrant County's delegation in the Texas Legislature will be full of fresh faces, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported in a story that featured UT Arlington political science professor Allan Saxe. At least six seats in the state House will be filled by newcomers from the greater Fort Worth-Arlington area, after the incumbents either opted to run for different offices or were defeated in their primaries. “We lose a little bit of seniority, but seniority doesn't count as much as it used to," Saxe said.
