Project MOSAIC aims to develop a community of educators.

We're just starting up in Spring 2010, with our Kick-Off Workshop to be held in late June 2010.

Eventually, this page will give contact information for members of the community. For the present, here are the co-Pis of the NSF grant that is helping to develop the project (NSF DUE-0920350).

Project MOSAIC Principal Investigators

Daniel Kaplan, Macalester College
Danny Kaplan is the DeWitt Wallace Professor of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota. His research background is in the application of nonlinear dynamics to physiological variability, especially as it connects to cardiology. At Macalester, he has developed the introductory sequence in calculus and statistics as well as an introduction to computing for scientists. He's written several textbooks: Understanding Nonlinear Dynamics, Introduction to Scientific Computation and Programming, and Statistical Modeling: A Fresh Approach.
Nicholas Horton, Smith College
Nicholas Horton is an Associate Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. His research interests are in longitudinal regression models and missing data methods (with applications in psychiatric epidemiology and substance abuse research) as well as statistics education. He is the author of a series of books on statistical computing, including Using R for Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Graphics and a related blog.
Eric Marland, Appalachian State University

Randall Pruim, Calvin College
Randy Pruim is an Associate Professor of Mathematics and Statistics and Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI. His research interests have shifted over the years from mathematical logic, to computational complexity, to computational biostatistics. He is co-author (with Uwe Shöning) of Gems of Theoretical Computer Science, translator of Complexity Theory by Ingo Wegener, and is currently writing Foundations and Applications of Statistics: and Introduction Using R which will be published by the AMS.
