Sharing the Treats of Mathematics in a Senior Capstone Course
Shifflet, Daniel R.
PRIMUS, v23 n4 p377-384 2013
In this paper we discuss why a senior capstone course is the perfect setting to reward graduating seniors with some of the more fun and interesting aspects of advanced mathematics. We provide a beginner's list of topics to consider as well as a method of implementing these tidbits outside of the classroom if time is an issue.
