Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Mathematics at CSUSB

Want to have a fantastic summer? What could be more exciting than conducting research in mathematics for eight weeksÂ…and getting paid to do it?! If this sounds like fun read on--it just keeps getting better!

Program Description
The principal goal of the REU in mathematics at CSUSB is to provide promising undergraduate math majors with a meaningful, exciting and challenging experience in mathematical research. During the eight-week residential program students will carry out guided independent and collaborative research. Research problems will come from the fields of Geometry and Knot Theory, and will be chosen in consultation with a faculty mentor. The program culminates with participants writing research papers based on their work, and presenting their results at a poster session as well as a formal seminar.

Dates
June 30 -- August 22, 2014 (8 weeks)
