Students and faculty in the Mathematics Department collaborate on research and pedagogy in numerous ways.  The 700 level senior seminar is a capstone experience for every mathematics major that involves working closely with a faculty member.  In addition to this required component of the major, many students engage in research with faculty as an independent study project (Math 500) or working in the summer.  Students have the opportunity to give presentations on their work in our weekly seminars or at regional conferences such as the annual Hudson River Undergraduate Math Conference.

Alex Lyford, along with research assistants Thomas Rahr ('20) and Tina Chen ('18) recently published an article entitled Using Camels to Teach Probability and Expected Value in the journal Teaching Statistics.
