The purpose of this requirement is to nurture the development of mathematical writing in order to deepen the student’s understanding of mathematics and to enable the student to communicate technical ideas to a range of audiences. Sophomores are expected to demonstrate proficiency in expository mathematics by the submission of an acceptable portfolio. Juniors are expected to demonstrate proficiency in technical or analytical mathematical writing by the submission of an acceptable portfolio. Seniors demonstrate their ability by completing a senior comprehensive paper, which is evaluated by a committee of three faculty.
All mathematics majors, in Pro-Seminar (MATH 496 Pro-Seminar), independently study a mathematical topic of their choice and work with a faculty advisor. They present their work in a series of talks in the seminar. The project culminates in a paper and a formal presentation. This final presentation, followed by questioning by a faculty committee, constitutes the Senior Comprehensive in mathematics.
