Conducting Mathematical Research with Undergraduates
Roberts, Gareth E.
PRIMUS, v23 n9 p785-797 2013
The notion that undergraduates are capable of making profound and original contributions to mathematical research is rapidly gaining acceptance. Undergraduates bring their enthusiasm, creativity, curiosity, and perseverance to bona fide research problems. This article discusses some of the key issues concerning undergraduate mathematical research: selecting good research students, finding appropriate research questions, mentoring versus collaboration, and presenting and publishing student work. Some useful professional and financial resources supporting undergraduate research are also highlighted.
