You can take advantage of a number of opportunities as part of
the Lindsey Wilson Mathematics community. As a math major you
may choose to tutor for us in the Mathematics Center. Not
only do you interact with other students and majors, you also earn
some nice spending money, too. Our tutors are the main focus
of our cookouts and parties near the end of each semester.
You may elect to accompany a group of students lead by a faculty
member to a regional or national meeting. Should you produce
your own results from working with a faculty member one on one, you
could make a presentation at one of these meetings.
There are also various mathematics competitions sponsored by
national organizations available for students. One of our
main interests at Lindsey is helping you develop yours.
We encourage you as a student to engage your curiosity about
mathematics and its applications. Working closely with a
faculty member on a question that is important to you is a
rewarding experience. Our faculty have worked with students
on questions involving creating optimal course offerings, modeling
racing strategy in swimming, assigning work in a machine shop,
analyzing the drive thru for fast food, and numerical techniques of
integration. We would enjoy the opportunity to work with you
on your particular mathematical investigation.
Although an internship is not common in mathematics, we have had
students who gained insights and work experience through academic
internships. These included a semester in a local bank and a
summer at an investment company in Louisville.
