Senior Thesis

This page is for Undergraduate Senior Theses.  For Ph.D. Theses, see here .

So that Math Department senior theses can more easily benefit other undergraduate, we would like to exhibit more senior theses online (while all theses are available through Harvard University Archives , it would be more convenient to have them online). It is absolutely voluntary, but if you decide to give us your permission, please send an electronic version of your thesis to cindy@math. The format can be in order of preference: DVI, PS, PDF. In the case of submitting a DVI format, make sure to include all EPS figures. You can also submit Latex or MS word source files.

If you are looking for information and advice from students and faculty about writing a senior thesis, look at this document . It was compiled from comments of students and faculty in preparation for, and during, an information session. Let Wes Cain ([email protected]) know if you have any questions not addressed in the document.

202 Math Research Topics: List To Vary Your Ideas

202 Math Research Topics

Mathematics is an exceptional field of study dealing primarily with numbers. It also deals with structures, formulas, shapes, spaces, and quantities of where they are contained.

Maths encompasses different types of computations that are applied in the real world.

Math requires a lot of analysis. This is why there are different types of maths. They all encompass different subjects and deal with different things. What are the types of maths?

Arithmetic This is perhaps the commonest type or branch of maths. It is one of the oldest and it encompasses basic numbers operations. These are addition, subtraction, multiplication, and divisions; in some schools, the short word for it is BODMAS. This is known as the Bracket of Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction. Algebra This is where unknown quantities are represented by alphabets and used along with numbers. The letters these unknown quantities are represented by are usually A, B, X, and Y, and they could also be symbols. Geometry This is considered one of the practical branches of maths as it examines sizes, shapes, figures, and the features of these entities. The most common parts of geometry are lines, points, solids, surfaces, and angles.

There are many other types but the above are the most popular. Others are trigonometry, topology, mathematical analysis, calculus, probability, statistics, and a few others.

As many students find it hard to develop maths research topics on their own, this is a chance for you. It’s okay to be worked up when you can’t find undergraduate math research topics that fit your project, essay or paper choices. This article will provide custom maths education research topics for your use. Before that, how do you structure your math essay or paper?

How to Structure Your Math Essay or Paper

Structuring your essay or paper may require that you’ve been reading critical math journals. Reading them could have made it easy to understand how to structure your paper. However, you don’t have to worry if you haven’t. Structuring your paper as expected is an essential part of writing and you’ll know about it in this section. Before you learn that, how do you choose a topic?

Choosing a Topic to Discuss

One of the difficult yet significant parts of any math essay or paper is choosing your topic. This is because you need to solve a problem or engage in a subject that has got less attention. You also need to understand the background to the subject you want to discuss as you can’t write blindly.

You must also be able to articulate your thoughts well as you must show visible knowledge before you commence the research and writing. How do you go about this? You can consider reading existing research. You can even take notes during classes to see the areas you think more work needs to be done.

After choosing your topic, conduct your research to see if you can investigate the sphere. If you can, you need to structure your research thus:

The Background This includes the discussion on what the essay is about. Depending on what you’re writing about, you need to discuss the primary concepts, including the history of some terms, where essential, in this section. This section is more like general information about the subject you want to discuss with your paper. This helps your readers familiarize themselves with your intended discussion. The Introduction This is where the main ideas behind your essays (and the solutions you hope to proffer) are tended to the readers. This is where you also explain the symbols you’ll use and the principles which are required in your essay. Aside from this, you need to state the basic issues, the solutions you could offer, the laws which are essential to discuss to make your work comprehensible. The Main Body This is where you elaborate on your findings. You need to state the research problem, the formulas, the theories you’ll use in tackling the problem, and many other things. You also need to introduce different sections of maths into the main body which is divided by paragraphs and/or chapters as well as mathematical analysis where needed. Implications This is the last part of your essay or paper. This is where you share the insights of your research with your readers. You offer short explanations of the things you have discussed. If you have treated a subject in applied mathematics, this is where you give summaries of how math is connected to human life and the strategic importance of these to people.

By adhering to this structure, you would have crafted the best rated and high-quality maths paper. Furthermore, remember you always have an option to get help with dissertations and save your time. Since it is sometimes challenging to choose cool maths topics to research on your own, these are some for you:

100+ Amazing Algebra Topics for Research Papers

Algebra Topics

Many students seek algebra topics when writing research papers in this mathematical field. Algebra is the study field that entails studying mathematical symbols and rules for their manipulation. Algebra is the unifying thread for most mathematics, including solving elementary equations to learning abstractions like rings, groups, and fields. In most cases, people use algebra when unsure about the exact numbers. Therefore, they replace those numbers with letters. In business, algebra helps with sales prediction. While many students dislike mathematics, avoiding algebra research paper topics is almost impossible at an advanced study level. Therefore, this article lists topics to consider when writing a research paper in this academic field. It’s helpful because many learners struggle to find suitable topics when writing research papers in this field.

How to Write Theses on Advanced Algebra Topics

A thesis on an algebra topic is an individual project that the learner writes after investigating and studying a specific idea. Here’s a step-by-step guide for writing a thesis on an algebra topic.

Pick a topic: Start by selecting a title for your algebra thesis. Your topic should relate to your research interests and your supervisor’s guidelines. Investigate your topic: Once you’ve chosen a topic, research it extensively to know the relevant theories, formulas, and texts. Your thesis should be an extension of a particular topic’s analysis and a report on your research. Write the thesis: Once you’ve explored the topic extensively, start writing your paper. Your dissertation should have an abstract, an introduction, the body, and a conclusion.

The abstract should summarise your thesis’ aims, scope, and conclusions. The introduction should introduce the topic, size, and significance while providing relevant literature and outlining the logical structure. The body should have several chapters with details and proofs of numerical implementations, while the conclusion should restate your main arguments and tell readers the effects. Also, it should suggest future work.
