MAT 426 Math Lit: Rdg & Communication

Prerequisite: Senior standing and permission of instructor

The main goal of this course is to introduce students to research and communication in mathematics. Teams of students will work together reading and discussing selected articles from selected mathematical
journals, writing team papers, and giving team presentations on the material read. The emphasis will be placed on developing reading comprehension of mathematics above the textbook level and on developing effective methods for communicating this information. The course will culminate in the completion of individual student projects, with students selecting their own article or topic to research, and presenting the material both in a formal research paper and in an oral presentation. The satisfactory completion of this individual project will satisfy the senior seminar requirement for the Mathematics Major.
