Cayla McBee and Violeta Vasilevska

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 3, 395–401
Abstract

In this article we provide information for faculty interested in engaging in undergraduate research with their students. Most of the information discussed was gathered from the 2012 Trends for Undergraduate Research in Mathematical Sciences conference. The article includes information on finding appropriate research projects and students to work with. It also discusses various opportunities for faculty as well as some general advice for those new to mentoring undergraduate research.
