Abstract

In this paper, a model is outlined for integrating research activities with undergraduates within the mathematics curriculum. Introducing a sequence of courses designed to engage students in research projects has brought about a change in the mathematical culture of students. The history and challenges associated with the creation of this program are discussed, indicating the positive outcomes it has had on student learning. Also discussed is the shift in departmental thoughts on student capabilities. Specific examples of student work are cited.
