Mathematics (MATH)

MATH 314H PMASS Problem Solving Seminar (1) Group work on challenging problems, discussions and project presentations.

MATH 314H PMASS Problem Solving Seminar (1)

A 1-credit Problem Solving Seminar will feature group work on challenging problems which require only elementary
techniques for their solution. Each student of the PMASS program will be required to participate in two individual or group projects. Unlike those in MASS Program, the projects will not be necessarily closely related to the courses, although the course instructors will be encouraged to offer topics and supervise the work. Some projects will grow out of the work of the problem solving seminar, and the seminar will be a venue for the students to discuss their research projects.

This course is a a part of a new “pre-MASS” program (PMASS)
aimed at freshman/sophomore level students, which will operate in steady state in the spring semesters. This course is linked with other PMASS courses, and is highly recommended to all mathematics, physics and natural sciences majors who are graduate school bound, and is a great opportunity for all Schreyer Scholars.

Each student of the PMASS program will be required to participate in two individual or group projects.
The achievement of educational objectives will be assessed through evaluations of the project presentations.
