on all areas of mathematics including applications to other disciplines.
The Sonoma State University Mathematics Department is inviting
mathematics students from Northern California to participate in an
mathematics conference. In this conference, undergraduates will have
opportunity to present and attend 15-minute talks about projects that
are working on. These projects could include undergraduate research
independent study projects, or any other independent work they are
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
on any area of mathematics, including applications to other
While we do hope that many students will give a talk, we welcome all
to attend, as well as all faculty.
CONFERENCE SUPPORT: The Northern California
Mathematics Conference is partially funded by a grant from the National
Foundation and is administered through the Mathematical
of America (through DMS-0241090).
Pacific Coast Undergraduate Mathematics
| The conference will be
held on Saturday, March 25th, 2006 on the campus of Occidental College
in Los Angeles, California. The conference will begin at 8 a.m.
and run until 5 p.m. The conference is designed specifically for
undergraduates who are majoring or have an interest in
mathematics. We encourage students of all experience levels to
consider giving a talk at the conference and we are offering a special
session for freshmen and sophomore student speakers. The keynote
speaker for the conference will be Dr. Jennifer Quinn from Occidental
College/University of Puget Sound. In addition, the conference
will feature two panel discussions, one focusing on summer
opportunities for students and the other discussing career
opportunities in mathematics.
| Funding for the Pacific
Coast Undergraduate Mathematics Conference is provided by NSF Grant
DMS-0241090 through the MAA Regional Undergraduate Mathematics
Conference program, which can be found at www.maa.org/rumc.
