The UMAP Journal

The Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications (UMAP) Journal, published quarterly, blends contemporary teaching modules with commentaries and articles to create a boldly different periodical. Each issue puts several real-world problems under a mathematical lens and demonstrates how real people are using mathematics in their jobs and lives. Whether it is exploring an elegant explanation of price-elasticity of illegal drugs, or the strategic implications of disarming the U.S. nuclear arsenal, The UMAP Journal is the modeling journal for anyone interested in applied mathematics. Current and past issues are available electronically with COMAP full membership. COMAP also offers a print subscription as an add-on to full members.
