GVSU Research Experience for Undergraduates program visits Wayne State
On Friday, July 19, the Department of Mathematics hosted the Research Experience for Undergraduates program in mathematics from Grand Valley State University.
Eight undergraduate students from throughout the nation are spending their summer at Grand Valley State University working on research problems in mathematics. They took a break from their usual schedule to visit the Wayne State campus, where they learned about opportunities for graduate study in mathematics. They were accompanied by faculty advisers from Grand Valley State.
The visit included a campus tour, lunch with Wayne State graduate students, a student colloquium, and tea with the Department of Mathematics faculty. The colloquium speaker was Professor Fatih Celiker, who gave a talk titled A Brief Introduction to Numerical Methods. At tea, one of the students showed everyone how to create a coupled oscillator using buckyballs (spherical rare earth magnets).
