Case Studies of Mathematics in ATE Programs


A working draft of resources and reports from an NSF-sponsored project intended to strengthen the role of mathematics in Advanced Technological Education (ATE) programs. Intended as a resource for ATE faculty and members of the mathematical community. Comments are welcome by e-mail to the project directors: Susan L. Forman or Lynn A. Steen.


Case studies of ATE program areas serve two purposes. They illustrate challenging mathematics that undergirds important areas of advanced technological work and they document the importance of this mathematics to students' education.

Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

Image Processing

High-Performance Manufacturing

Precision Agriculture
