Northern California Undergraduate Mathematics Conference
When: April 16, 2005
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
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 Helen Moore 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.
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).
