- Kappa Mu Epsilon is
a specialized honor society in Mathematics. KME was founded in 1931 to promote
the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students. Its chapters are
located in colleges and universities of recognized standing which offer a
strong mathematics major. The chapters' members are selected from students
of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standards
of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.
Both men and women are eligible for membership.

Undergraduate Projects and Research
- Continued Fractions
- A senior Honor's Project at Calvin College by Adam Van Tuyl which gives
the history, theory, applications and bibliography on the thery of continued
fractions. In the section on applications there are a number of interactive
programs that convert rationals (or quadratic irrationals) into a simple
continued fraction, as well as the converse.

- Math Forum -
Undergraduate Research Programs in Mathematics. The Math Forum hosts a
growing database of announcements for undergraduate math research programs,
including: - Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) - Other Summer
Programs (non-REU) - Research Semester Programs
- Mathematics Advanced Study Semesters
(MASS) is a new semester-long program at Penn State which provides a comprehensive
mathematical environment for a group of talented undergraduate students selected
from U.S. colleges and universities and brought to the University Park campus.
The program combines advanced learning with research initiation. It may be
characterized as a "domestic study abroad" program (Fall semesters only.)
- AHPCRC Internship Program:
The primary objective of this internship program funded by the National Science
Foundation is to promote undergraduate research in high performance computing
(HPC) in fluid dynamics, including parallel computing and advanced visualization
techniques. The projects are supervised by faculty in aerospace engineering
and mechanics, chemical engineering and materials science, and computer science.
It is also the objective of this program to encourage the participants to
pursue graduate studies in HPC and its applications in engineering and sciences.

who participated in a couple of REU programs.
- The George Washington University Summer
Program for Women in Mathematics (SPWM) is a four-week intensive program
for mathematically talented undergraduate women who are completing their junior
year and may be contemplating graduate study in the mathematical sciences.
The goals of this program are to communicate an enthusiasm for mathematics,
to develop research skills, to cultivate mathematical self-confidence and
independence, and to promote success in graduate school.
- The Carleton/St. Olaf Colleges
Summer Mathematics Program for Women is an NSF/NSA funded program to encourage
and support women in their study of mathematics. The goals of the program
include: introducing students to new areas of mathematics; honing students'
mathematical reasoning, proof writing, problem solving, and presentation skills;
building self-confidence, encouraging enthusiasm for mathematics, and increasing
awareness of careers in the mathematical sciences; connecting students into
a supportive network of other female college math majors, graduates and professionals.
- Initiated by Paul Erdös, Lászsló Lovász, and Vera
T. Sós, the program Budapest
Semesters in Mathematics provides a unique opportunity for North American
undergraduates. Through this program, mathematics and computer science majors
in their junior/senior years may spend one or two semesters in Budapest and
study under the tutelage of eminent Hungarian scholar-teachers.
