Visiting Assistant Professor Martin Montgomery’s Differential Equations class (Math 219) visited Baxter Brewery January 29th as part of an ongoing collaboration between Baxter and Bates.  In the Differential Equations course, students study how to make predictions based upon some measured change.  Baxter has an interest in understanding how populations of yeast change in their beer.  With help from Assistant Professor Colleen O’Loughlin’s biochemistry (Chem 322) students and the Harward Center, Bates and Baxter search for solutions together!
