This course is a two semester sequence.
This class divides itself into groups of three to five students. Each group selects a topic and will do research on that topic during the course of the year.
Each group will make a formal one-hour presentation of their research results in March of 2012.
summary of where their research is taking them and roughly what they plan to
present in March of 2012 and what remains to be done to get there. From time to
time (randomly), we will have invited dinner guests. They last a maximum of one and one-half hour. After dinner, students
especially interested in the visitor can adjourn to Arch's (or similar) and
chat with visitor. There are no set times for these dinners. The
dinners are dutch-treat. In fact, we look
for volunteers to pick up the pizza and soda for each meeting and volunteers to
brief the rest of the class on the background and history of the visitor and
their business prior to the visitor's appearance.
