"The US nationwide technological know-how beginning (NSF) study reviews for Undergraduates (REU) application in arithmetic is now 25 years previous, and it's a solid time to consider what it has accomplished, the way it has replaced, and the place this concept will pass next."

This was once the basis of the convention held at Mt. Holyoke collage in the course of 21–22 June, 2013, and this circle of principles is introduced ahead during this quantity. The convention introduced jointly different issues of view, from NSF directors, leaders of university-wide honors courses, to college who had led REUs, fresh PhDs who're anticipated to guide them quickly, and scholars at present in an REU themselves. The dialog used to be so diversified that it justifies a book-length try and seize all that was once recommended, suggested, and stated. one of the members are Ravi Vakil (Stanford), Haynes Miller (MIT), and Carlos Castillo-Chavez (Arizona, President's Obama Committee at the nationwide Medal of technological know-how 2010–2012).

This publication may still serve not just as a set of audio system' notes, but in addition as a resource ebook for an individual drawn to instructing arithmetic and within the threat of incorporating research-like studies in arithmetic periods at any point, in addition to designing study reports for undergraduates open air of the classroom.

Readership: Undergraduates, practitioners and academics in arithmetic.
