Mathematics

In most advanced courses students investigate open-ended problems, which provide ample scope for creative thinking and exploration, often using professional software. Each year a number of undergraduates participate in summer internship programs at other institutions, typically sponsored by the NSF, DOE and other public entities. All graduate students, as well as undergraduates seeking academic honors, are required to complete a project that requires extensive work beyond the standard curriculum. Faculty grants from the NSF include funds to support undergraduate research activities. Typical student tasks in this context involve computer programming and generating graphical images to illustrate fundamental concepts.
