The DRP matches undergraduate math majors (mentees) with math graduate students (mentors) to read on a math topic that is not typically covered in our classes. This is a chance for undergraduates to dive deeper into math, have one on one discussions with experts, and explore a fun new topic with their mentors.
The program will run throughout the 2021-2022 year, with pairs being formed in Fall 2021 and continuing with the same reading topics and pairings during the Winter and Spring 2022 quarters. Mentors and mentees will meet weekly to discuss the reading and questions. The DRP will host a poster session in the winter quarter and a conference for undergraduate presentations in the spring quarter.
2021-2022 organizers: Wai Ho Chak, Gregory de Paul, Mary Claire Simone Zhiji Wang, Laura Starkston (faculty mentor)
