MT 401 Overview
This is a culminating experience for majors in mathematics who are near the end of their program. The objectives of this seminar are to review fundamental concepts of mathematics; provide opportunities for students to integrate, synthesize and/or extend their knowledge base in the major; develop collaborative problem-solving skills in a peer group; and explore career opportunities available to graduates in mathematics and computer science. A faculty member acting as a facilitator will provide a list of topics to be covered on the exam and some problems for class discussion. Readings in mathematical history or philosophy also may be required. Students will be expected to play a major role in planning and carrying out activities to meet the course objectives. This course is normally taken in a student's final year of upper-division coursework in the major. Prerequisite: Senior standing, MT 212 and departmental approval.
