Iowa State Mathematics Research Teams (ISMaRT) engage ISU undergraduate students in mathematical research in teams. Each team of 2-4 undergraduates is led by a postdoctoral research associate and also contains a faculty member and a graduate student.
Undergraduates in ISMaRT may receive up to 2 credits of Math 490 for participation in ISMaRT upon agreement with the faculty member who is on the project. Note this must be decided at the start of the program.
2 credits of Math 490 that includes significant writing and oral presentation.
There is the possibility of funding for students working on certain projects either through the department’s RTG grant or the LAS Dean’s High Impact Award for Undergraduate Research. Once matched with your mentor, inquire with them if you are interested in seeking funding.
