The Department of Mathematics and Statistics announces the nineteenth 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 September 15, 2023 .
Application Form. Please apply by September 8, however late applications will be considered.

Structure: 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 2024.
