MA491 RESEARCH SEMNR-APPLD MATH 2013 1 Mathematical Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=3.0)
SCOPE
The student integrates the mathematical concepts and techniques learned in previous courses with the principles developed throughout the whole USMA Curriculum to solve a current problem of interest to the individual, to the Academy, or to agencies in the Department of the Army. Cadets may select problems from a list of suitable projects provided by the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Cadets choose a faculty advisor who has an interest and background in the problem. Cadets may work individually or in small teams, depending on the nature of the research. Regular workshop sessions will be held. Cadets will be given an opportunity to present their research at the Service Academies Student Mathematics Conference and/or other undergraduate conferences. Research reports will be reviewed, edited, and compiled into the USMA Transactions on Cadet Mathematical Research.
LESSONS: 17 @ 55 min (1.000 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Weekly meetings @ 55 min; one research paper (80 hours).
