Northern California Undergraduate
April 8, 2006
Where: Sonoma State University,
Rohnert Park, CA
Who: Undergraduates from
Northern California (and their faculty sponsors)
What: Participation and presentations
on all areas of mathematics including applications to other disciplines.
The Sonoma State University Mathematics Department is inviting undergraduate
mathematics students from Northern California to participate in an undergraduate
mathematics conference. In this conference, undergraduates will have the
opportunity to present and attend 15-minute talks about projects that they
are working on. These projects could include undergraduate research projects,
independent study projects, or any other independent work they are doing
that goes beyond the standard course curriculum. The conference will conclude
with an invited talk by John Martin
tailored toward undergraduate math students.
Students from all years of study are encouraged to participate and give presentations
on any area of mathematics, including applications to other disciplines.
While we do hope that many students will give a talk, we welcome all students
to attend, as well as all faculty.
CONFERENCE SUPPORT: The Northern California Undergraduate
Mathematics Conference is partially funded by a grant from the National Science
Foundation and is administered through the Mathematical Association
of America (through DMS-0241090).
