This quarter-long program was modeled after the GULP
program run by the local AWM Chapter
. It consists of small groups of advanced undergraduate students who are curious about algebra, algebraic geometry, or number theory. Each group will explore a topic in one of these subjects under the mentorship of one of our graduate students. At the end of the quarter, the mentees will give a short presentation of what they learned at a pizza party sponsored by the faculty.
By participating in this program, undergraduates get to learn more about a topic in algebra, algebraic geometry, or number theory; gain experience presenting mathematical ideas to their peers; and bond with a graduate student who has experience working as a mathematician.
At the same time, the graduate
students get the opportunity to
practice pedagogical skills using material familiar to them.
in the group would be happy to advise/help with curriculum design.
The program will run next during the Spring 2018 quarter. Applications will open in February.
