MATH 488 & MATH 489 (Project)  Home Page 2020
This is the website for all Honours projects taken in 2020 as either a 15point course (MATH 488) or 30point course (MATH 489).
As part of the Honours year, students are expected to sign up for 30 points of projectbased work under the MATH 488/489 labels. This could be two 15point projects. Students are responsible for finding supervisor(s) for their project work. Potential supervisors are listed in the table below together with the areas in which they are willing to supervise a project; sometimes there is a link to sample projects.
To find a suitable project, please begin by speaking to the Honours Coordinator,
Astrid an Huef, and any potential supervisors you are considering.
Here is the
COURSE OUTLINE document, describing expectations concerning the project report, submission deadline, workload, assessment, oral presentation etc.
There are three types of project structure:
