For the last four years, the University of Nevada, Reno has been
implementing a comprehensive plan called Mathematics Across the
Curriculum. Its goal is to make the learning and appreciation of
mathematics a shared responsibility on campus by enhancing the
mathematics components of a wide range of courses, especially in the
core curriculum.

The project has created a laboratory containing 30 microcomputers
networked to a file server equipped with various mathematics and
statistics software for use by undergraduate students. The lab is
staffed and managed in a Mathematics Center whose director works with
faculty both inside and outside the Mathematics Department to enhance
the role of mathematics and technology in their courses and to assist
students in coping with mathematics-related assignments.
