Yale Mathematics Directed Reading Program

Program overview

The Directed Reading Program pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to read and work through a mathematics topic or text over the course of one semester. The pairs meet once each week for one hour, with the undergraduates expected to do about 4 hours of independent reading per week. 

Students can select projects from the menu of suggestions by graduate students or propose projects of their own. Undergraduates will be paired with graduate students based on their availability and mathematical interests.

At the end of each semester, students get together to give short (10-15 minutes) presentations related to their projects.

Note that for graduate students with more than one project listed, not all projects may be offered.
