Senior Project

All senior math majors at the University of La Verne are required to complete a Senior Project to fulfill the requirements for graduation. This body of work is expected to be 1) the solution of a research problem, either in pure or applied mathematics, or mathematics education, or 2) an expository study of a mathematical or mathematics education topic that you have not formally studied in a previous course.

The Senior Project demonstrates that students have been interactive with upper level mathematics or mathematics education, on an independent basis, under the guidance of a faculty advisor. Through this activity, they gain experience in:

  • reading professionally written mathematical or mathematics education articles;
  • developing proficiency in coherent mathematical writing;
  • learning how to analyze and synthesize in expository projects; and
  • effectively communicating the findings of the project in both oral and written format.

Math seniors are evaluated according to mathematical or mathematics education content, exposition, and effort.
