LAVC Math Students to Present at the So Cal Conference for Undergradute Research

Six LAVC students will present at the annual Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at Harvey Mudd College. Lauren Busby, Arteen Galstyan, Jereme Badger, David Flores, Michael Frawley and Aaron Brown will present “Partitioning Exotic Spheres to Examine the Holographic Universe”, under the guidance of Shanna Dobson, adjunct instructor of Mathematics.

The LAVC Math Department is sponsoring the presenters, and five other students to the conference. Most of them are students in Math 285 (Independent Study), which is a class team-taught by George Caleodis, Luz Shin and Shanna Dobson that discusses math topics beyond courses offered at Valley College including Group Theory, Topology and Mathematical Physics.

The Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is an organization of Southern California faculty, administrators, and interested members of the community who share the common goal of improving education for college and university students through hands-on experiences of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity. SCCUR supports inquiry-based education, in which students learn while doing, working closely with faculty mentors on significant academic projects and presenting their results to audiences in a professional manner.

Congratulations!
