Directed Reading Program in Mathematics

Graduate, Undergraduate

The Directed Reading Program in Mathematics pairs undergraduate participants with graduate student mentors to read a selected math text/paper.  It is designed to give undergraduates the ability to explore topics they might not see in the standard curriculum in a fun and stress-free environment.

Aimed at UCSD undergraduate Mathematics majors, the program could be suitable for undergraduates from any major who would like to further explore the field - applicants must have completed (or be in the process of taking) one of the Math 100/200, 220, or 140/240 series.
