Mathematics Education at SNU
At SNU you will be prepared for a lifetime of coaching others through mathematical problem solving because of our unique approach to your learning. In addition to a standard range of mathematics courses, you will take three one-hour capstone courses designed to develop a strong set of mathematical skills that are anything but standard. In Junior Colloquium you will learn to read, report and orally present on math books and journal articles. An experience that will develop your understanding of math skills as well as sharpen your ability to communicate the math you have read. Senior Seminar is a semester long comprehensive problem solving “exam” where you will face all the math you have studied during your 4 years at SNU. While solving a large set of math problems, you will recall, review and integrate concepts and problem solving techniques from all of your university level mathematics courses. The final capstone course, Senior Research in Math, involves a one-on-one research project directed by one of the math faculty. You will be guided on your first real journey of creating “new” mathematics.
