1 IX REUNIÓN DE DECANOS Y DIRECTORES DE MATEMÁTICAS Maths+something in an international framework at Nice Sophia-Antipolis University

2 Three examples Licence Mass Licence BIM Master IMAMIS (m2im)

3 Licence MASS http://math.unice.fr/Dept/2004/L-MASS.html file:///D:/TRavailM/MesDocus/Tuning/Logroño/L-MASS.html

4 Some French Specificities A Baccalauréat suffices to enter University A Bac S or ES suffices to take a Math major Selective HE institutions exist outside Uni P robably not more then 25% get a Bachelor in 3 y Many students want to take a Math major Not many teachers accept to adapt their teaching to the knowledge and interests of students

5 The Licence (=Bachelor) MASS MASS= Mathématiques Appliquées aux Sciences Sociales Actually, often and in Nice, SS means Economics

6 MASS in Nice was created in 1992 as a demand of economists Martyrology Economy: lab= CEMaFI Claude Berthomieux, Jean-Paul Guichard,… Maths: lab= Labo Dieudonné [Georges Haddad], Francine Diener, Daniela Zône-Soubiran, Marc D., Jean-François Burnol… Sciences Dean: Michel Rouillard 1992

7 Let’s have a glance on the synopsis (Swich to Logroño.xls-Lmass) Remark on 72/180 5/180 for internship (on the job training) and impact on the returning students

8 Important features for the success Economists interested in Math (joint seminars) Mathematicians interested in Economy Common enthusiasm to create something new accessible to open-minded students Weekly seminar when somebody wanted to experiment an innovative course At least one person (FD) had a complete scientific view off all years and all matter

9 Mottos for the Math teaching Students not allowed to be shy about mathematical subjects Teachers not allowed to assume that the content is important just because it is in the programme… … or interesting just because it is mathematically correct. Rigor is a tool, not a purpose (or a Grail)

10 Some pleasant innovations Calculus taught with infinitesimals Probability taught by non-probabilists (no probabilists were/are available in Nice) Finance with discrete models (with infinitesimals in mind: van den Berg created the teaching and published later a book ) All this contributed to have enthusiastic teachers

11 A convincing rumor among students « If you take MASS (and not Math) you’ll get 1 point more (on 20) »

12 Output 25% prefer to get immediately a job (banks, insurance, trade, …) 50% enter in a fourth year in Nice (possibly leaving later for some selective HE school, such as ENSAE, Dauphine,…) 25% leave immediately Nice to enter a Master programme elsewhere Last 50-25 tend to become 25-50

13 A new adventure BIM Biology,Computer Science, Math Swich to logroño.xls-BIM for a synopsis

14 BIM: Main features Three tracks in the three Bachelor programmes: Biology (with Math and CS) Computer Science (with Math and Biology) Maths (with Biology and CS) A clearly identified group of students in different Bachelor tracks, sharing common lectures and student-projects Again, the demand did not come from the mathematicians, but here from biologists (and CS support)

15 Mottos for BIM teaching Each student will become a true Bachelor in Biology, or in Math, or in Computer Science, according to the chosen major. Thanks to the « projects » he will learn to speak with mates of the two other domains and understand and possibly share their centre of interests.

16 IMAMIS An Asia Link supported teacher- training programme in the Philippines (and Vietnam) Swich to Imamis\IMAMIS.htm Imamis\IMAMIS.htm International Master in Applied Maths and Information Sciences https://www.math.upd.edu.ph/imamis/

17 Master M2IM (IMAMIS in Nice) Switch to Logroño.xls-IMAMIS(M2IM) Master International en Informatique et Mathématiques

18 Master M2IM (IMAMIS) Main features Math and CS, with one major Student’s professional project oriented Choice of modules among most Math and CS teaching offer of Nice One semester (2nd or 3ed) outside France, in a IMAMIS partner university Last semester: internship in one partner company or laboratory

19 The IMAMIS Netwok Open to new partnerships Setup of an IMAMIS network Present in Manila (U. of Philippines) This will attract students who wish to have an organized international experience

20 Please contact me for more details and/or partnership on IMAMIS/M2IM right now or this evening, at the Bodega or at diener@unice.fr

21 Thank you for your attention!
