(1/2 Course, Unbilled)
In this course each student will investigate a mathematical problem or topic (appropriate for junior-level students of mathematics) under the supervision of a member of the mathematics faculty. The student will present the results of this investigation in a written report (using appropriate mathematics software) and an oral presentation to students and faculty. The report and presentation will be evaluated by the instructor with possible input from other full-time mathematics faculty members to determine the student’s grade in the course. Students will be supervised in the creation of the report and presentation.
