Dr. Joan Lind, an assistant professor of mathematics, has been teaching a topics course this semester devoted to an undergraduate research project in mathematics. Seven students have participated in this experience, and they presented their research at the regional Mathematical Association of America conference last month. Dr. Lind was recently awarded a grant from the Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics (CURM) at Brigham Young University (BYU). CURM is funded by BYU and a grant from the National Science Foundation. This grant will enable Dr. Lind to continue the undergraduate research project with her students. The CURM mini-grant awards the faculty member $5,000 for a course release. Also, two students, Sarah Claiborne and Cat Simpson, will each receive $2,000 for their year’s work.
