Abstract: Have you ever wondered…
… what things count as undergraduate research in mathematics?
… how to find good research problems for undergraduates?
… how to find interested students?
… what support/funding you can expect for mentoring undergraduate research?
At this talk, we will discuss some answers to these questions and more
from the point of view of a liberal arts university professor. Please
bring your own questions as well to make for a livelier conversation!
