THE PROGRAM
The program is designed to give students exposure to mathematical application in different areas of everyday life such as Agriculture, Business, Engineering, Logistics, Tourism, Transportation, etc through exploration and experience. Classes are held entirely in Nepal from May 15, 2014 to May 29, 2014. Classes are designed to help students develop skills to formulate mathematical ideas into mathematical models and apply the models to solve real life problems.
Students will learn through self-exploration, observation, guided field trips, group discussions, lectures from the instructor and guest lecturer. The program also involves numerous field trips, excursions, hiking/backpacking and other cultural activities.


ACCOMMODATIONS
Students will be staying in local hotels, double occupancy throughout their stay in Nepal. Breakfast and some meals are included in accommodation.

DISABILITY ACCOMMODATION
Nepal is a mountainous country and a lot of places we will be visiting are not accessible by road. This study abroad program requires extensive walking with backpack on daily basis. Students with documented disabilities who may need accommodations during their study abroad experience should discuss these needs with the Program Director and the Office of Disability Services at the time of application.
