    Classroom Resource Materials
    Volume: 732024; 172 pp
    MSC: Primary 00; 01

    This book is a comprehensive guide for the undergraduate mathematics major. It is designed as an extensive resource covering all aspects of the undergraduate mathematics experience, presenting the wide range of opportunities available to students both in and out of the classroom. The friendly, inclusive language used throughout contributes to the welcoming, supportive nature of the work.

    The book is broadly split into three parts:

    • The first section concentrates on the academic side of an undergraduate mathematics program, including an overview of typical course options within the major. Guidance on seeking out extracurricular experiences is another significant feature.
    • The second section offers advice on overcoming challenges, building support networks, and developing important technical skills.
    • The third section focuses on life after graduation, covering both academic and non-academic career paths. A particular highlight is the inclusion of interviews with former math majors from a diverse selection of careers.

    As well as serving as a standalone resource, Navigating the Math Major could be used as a textbook for an introductory course to the math major or as a supplement to a senior seminar. Students, their mentors, and anyone who advises mathematics majors will find this volume to be a treasure trove of valuable information.

    Readership
