Student Research

Student research at the undergraduate level refers to a broad range of out-of-the-classroom activity conducted under the supervision of a mathematics faculty member, and it is becoming more common for mathematics students to add this to their resume by the time they graduate. Activities range from independent study of a topic not covered in the course offerings, solving (and publishing) solutions to problems posed in mathematics magazines, reading and summarizing the contents of a research article, to participating in the research program of a faculty member.

Students that are interested in such an experience, and that have the necessary free time, should look over the research interests on the faculty web pages and contact appropriate faculty members to see if they are currently providing such opportunities. A student could also inquire with their mathematics course instructors.
