Director(s): Nate Dean, Kirin B. Chilakamarri, Department of Mathematics

Email: dean_nx@tsu.edu

Dates of Program: June 1 - 30; July 11 - 15, 2005

Summary: This project will provide an introduction to mathematical research for undergraduates. Several research topics in Discrete Mathematics wil be covered primarily in the form of lectures given by students and the instructors. Lectures given by the instructors will focus mainly on topics to motivate and augment student research. Each student will select an area of research and is required to become an expert in that selected area. Each student will complete an extensive survey of their area and report formally and informally on their progress regurly. The main objective of each student is to write a research paper and to effectively teach their topic to the rest of the group including constructing exercises of verying levels of difficulty for homework. Our daily group meetings will include formal presentations, discussions on technical writing, and constructive feedback on presentations and written reports.
