Building a Quality Presentation
When you are preparing a talk, especially for the first time, you will undoubtedly have many questions about how best to prepare. Joseph A. Gallian published an article in Math Horizons, which contains advice on planning and polishing a math talk. According to Gallian, "The ability to do a PowerPoint presentation well is a valuable skill that many students will find useful in connection with their academic work and employment." The article can be found here.
MURACE at Georgia College
Students looking for resources while conducting undergraduate research at Georgia College should visit the MURACE (Mentored Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors) website located here. There you will find information about the GC Undergraduate Research Conference, the Corinthian, an events calendar, information about summer research stipends, as well as student travel grants.
The Joint Mathematics Meetings of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America will hold its next annual conference virtually on January 6 - 9, 2021. According to the AMS website, these meetings "are held annually for the purpose of advancing mathematical achievement, encouraging research, and to provide the communication necessary to progress in the field. These meetings serve to preserve, supplement, and utilize the results of the research of mathematicians throughout the world." Please see http://www.ams.org/meetings/national/national for more information.
The Southeastern Section of the Mathematical Association of America will hold its annual spring meeting virtually on March 6 & 13, 2021. Please see http://www.maa.org/community/maa-sections/section-meetings for complete details.
The Mathematical Association of America will hold its annual MathFest in Sacramento, CA on August 4 - 7, 2021. Please see http://www.maa.org/meetings/mathfest for the latest updates.
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)
The National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the NSF. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. For a list of REU Sites in mathematics visit: http://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/list_result.cfm?unitid=5044.
Application Deadline: February-March, depending on the site.
