Title: | Undergraduate Research in Combinatorics/Graph Theory |

Speaker: | Heather Jordon Associate Professor Mathematics and Computer Science Albion College Albion, Michigan |

Abstract: | In last week's seminar, opportunities for funding for summer research projects were discussed but what would you actually DO in a summer research project? In this talk, several projects that undergraduate students worked on during the Spring 2016 semester in the mathematical area of combinatorics/graph theory will be discussed. We'll describe the projects, talk about the process, and what the students were required to do. The students did this work as part of a course entitled "Introduction to Undergraduate Research in Mathematics" at Illinois State University. Eight students participated who were all math majors; some pursuing secondary teaching and some going on to graduate school. |
