26th Annual RHIT Undergraduate Mathematics Conference: March 27th and 28th, 2009
The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Undergraduate Mathematics Conference is a two-day mathematics conference
held annually each spring since 1983. It is attended by students and faculty from various universities and colleges
primarily in Indiana and its surrounding states, but also from other states and countries. The conference features
20 minute talks by students in addition to three longer addresses by invited speakers. The invited speakers this year are mathematicians Dr. Christine Stevens
from Saint Louis University and Dr. Kelly Black of Union College.
Undergraduate students at all levels are invited to discuss
their independent work in any area associated with mathematics, its applications, history, philosophy, or pedagogy.
Undergraduates are welcome to submit abstracts of their talks anytime from now until March 23, 2009. Faculty are
encouraged to suggest to their students that the undergraduate mathematics conference at Rose-Hulman would be an
appropriate place to present a talk.
The 20 minute talks (please see SPEAKER GUIDELINES) could include (but are not limited to) topics from algebra,
calculus, geometry, history of mathematics, philosophy of mathematics, graph theory, or mathematical modeling.
Please look at the
Conference History to see the titles and abstracts of previous talks.
There is no registration
fee for those students presenting talks and free housing will be provided for all students attending the conference.
We are also requesting that each presenter have a
faculty sponsor. Students wishing to present a talk should
electronically mail the title, a brief abstract, and the sponsor's name to
than Monday, March 23, 2009. When making a submission, please include any requests for special equipment.
Available in every classroom is a transparency projector, an LCD projector that can be connected to a laptop
