One of the goals of the Math Department is to increase the ability of every student to research and solve problems. Every math major, regardless of emphasis, completes a senior research project as part of a two semester research sequence.
During the first semester, the student works with faculty members to explore mathematical research and develop a research project. In the second semester, the student works closely with a faculty member to carry out the project.
Finally, the results of the project are shared in the form of thesis and a presentation at MindExpo, Doane University's undergraduate research symposium, or at the Doane University Symposium in Undergraduate Math (SUM).
Past senior research projects include:
Spend your summer getting paid to work on math!
You can work on research as part of the Doane University Summer Research Program. You will work with a faculty member to develop a summer math project and receive a stipend!
Summer research projects include:
Contact any Faculty Member to discuss a project!
