MathematicsA&S: Natural Sciences & PsychologyNAThe nature of mathematics as a discipline is such that it’s rare that even an advanced undergraduate can complete a substantive research project independently. Instead, you work with a Mathematics faculty member to define an area of investigation, then meet weekly or bi-weekly on concepts and problems of ascending complexity and difficulty. Your Thesis will be a summary of the major steps in the process. Talk to the Thesis Liaison in Math, Professor Zacharia, for more details. MAT 499
