(MAHWAH, NJ) – Ramapo College will host the 7th annual Spuyten Duyvil Undergraduate Mathematics Conference on Saturday, April 14 for the first time.  The conference will feature keynote speaker Cindy Wyles of California State University Channel Islands who will address attendees with the lecture, “Graph Parameters and Beyond: Crafting Questions for Research.”

The lecture and conference will encourage students to participate in mathematical research as well as gain a better understanding of the breadth and dynamic nature of mathematics.  The conference offers a supportive environment that encourages undergraduate students to present on a mathematics or mathematics-related topic.  Students may  choose to give a 15 minute talk or participate in the poster session.  Presentations are open to undergraduate students of all majors, but the topics must be mathematics-related.

The conference will also include a job panel, where careers outside of the realm of teaching will be explored.  It will answer the question often asked by mathematics majors: “What can I do with a math degree?”

Previous Spuyten Duyvil Undergraduate Math Conferences have been held at Manhattan College, St Francis College, SUNY New Paltz and at the College of Mount Saint Vincent.

Funding for the Spuyten Duyvil is provided by NSF grant DMS-0846477 through the MAA Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Conferences program.  The conference is also supported in part by a grant from the Ramapo College Foundation.
