A decade of undergraduate research for all East Tennessee State University mathematics majors

Ariel Cintrón-Arias and Anant Godbole

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 3, 281–293
Abstract

This paper offers a brief history of an experiment begun in 2002, namely, the institutionalization of undergraduate research (UGR) in the mathematical sciences as a semester-long requirement for all mathematics majors at East Tennessee State University, a public, regional school. We describe the early, middle, and later years of this ten-year journey; assessment methods; and other aspects. Technical aspects of the student projects are limited to those in the authors’ fields of expertise, as captured by the MSC secondary classifications for this paper.
