Departmental Learning Goals:

Course Structure: This seminar will be an exploration of some of the most well-known and "beautiful" theorems and fields of mathematics. Theorems are drawn from a wide variety of mathematical disciplines including Number Theory, Analysis, Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Geometry, and Topology. Each student will have the opportunity to choose one theorem or other mathematical topic and become an expert on that theorem and the mathematics surrounding it. The student will present the theorem and relevant material to the class.

Grades: The course is graded as Pass/Fail. To earn a Pass, a student must actively attend and engage in class discussion and lead a presentation of one of the theorems from the text.

Disabilities: Students with disabilities are encouraged to speak with the professor about accommodations to produce an accessible learning environment.
