Information about UMTYMP Calculus
On Thursday, 3/2/17, Professor Rogness met with Math Analysis students and families to talk about the differences between UMTYMP Calculus and other options. You can download an expanded version of that presentation.
Undergraduate Math Journal
Many UMTYMP students and alumni work on research projects as undergraduates, or even while still in high school. MathCEP has collaborated with the Math Department and the Institute for Math and its Applications to create a new journal where undergraduates around the country can publish their work: the Minnesota Journal of Undergraduate Mathematics.
