Undergraduate RIMMES (RESEARCH INITIATIONS IN MATHEMATICS, MATHEMATICS
EDUCATION AND STATISTICS) at Georgia State University
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics announces the sixteenth edition of the program
Undergraduate Research Initiations in Mathematics, Mathematics Education
and Statistics (for short, RIMMES), open to undergraduate students at
Georgia State University.
The program goal is to introduce undergraduate students to research in
mathematics, mathematics education and statistics. The program will teach
the students how to recognize interesting research problems, develop new
ideas, compare them to old ones, and present their findings in papers or
posters. The students will benefit from close interaction with faculty
members and their peers.
Duration of the program:
about five months starting with October 1, 2020 .
Application Form. Please apply by September 25, however late applications will be considered.
the students accepted to this program will each be paired with a faculty
mentor and they will decide together on a research project and how to
organize their meetings. The faculty mentor will supervise the student and
make sure that appropriate progress is made. The student will prepare a
final project report in April 2021.
Conclusion of the program:
In April 2021, the Department will organize a Mathematics Conference where
the best research projects/posters will be presented by their authors.
