**SOME MATH LINKS**

1. Are you interested in summer
research in mathematics? The National Science Foundation
sponsors REUs---research experiences for undergraduates. For
a list of possibilities in the mathematical sciences, see *here.*

2. The American
Mathematical Society is the primary organization for researchers
in pure mathematics. Here is their *webpage
for undergraduates*,
listing many opportunities, information on careers, information on
graduate programs, etc.

3. The Mathematical Association of America is an
organization concerned with scholarship, teaching and learning in
mathematics. Here is their *webpage
for undergraduates*. It
includes setions on meetings, jobs and career options, summer
opportunties, and student chapters. They also put out a
magazine directed at undergraduates: *Math
Horizons*. The math
department has copies, so if you are interested in getting an
issue, please let me know.

4. *The
Association for Women in Mathematics*
supports women in mathematics at all levels of study. The "AWM
Resources" link connects you to many other sites with useful
information.

5. The *Math
Forum Student Center* has
math resources for students of all levels.

6. Are you interested in history? Here is a *website concerned with the History of
Mathematics*.
