Notes for the week:
Remember, we have eliminated the Second "Essay," but each week you WILL have Seminar Notes and a Seminar Paper due.
You should be looking for research areas of interest for your mathematica research.
We'll ask you to set-up a Wiki Page on Wednesday for YOUR CHOSEN TOPIC in MATHEMATICS. ...No doubt, the assigned reading will give you a lot to think about.
(Wednesday we'll meet in the computer center again, this time in the other classroom)
