### Undergraduate summer workshop

#### July 29 - August 2, 2019

##### University of Notre Dame

This is a week long event with two components: Part I,
where basic concepts in geometry and topology will be introduced,
followed by Part II, which will be a workshop aimed at more
advanced undergraduates. Participants can attend part I, part II,
or both.

**Funding** is available for domestic travel and
lodging. Apply at mathprograms.org.

#### Part I: A first glimpse

##### July 29 - July 31

##### Speakers: Mark Behrens, Juanita Pinzon-Caicedo, Amanda Serenevy

The first two and a half days of the workshop will have
two or three short courses assuming very little
mathematical background. Potential topics are: "What is a
manifold?", "What is curvature?", "Knot theory", and
"Hyperbolic geometry". A typical participant in this part
would have taken a Calculus sequence as well as a few
other math courses such as Linear Algebra. Part I will
consist of lectures, with active learning components
facilitated by graduate student mentors.

Part I schedule

#### Part II: Advanced topics

##### July 31 - August 2

The last two and a half days of the workshop will
consist of talks outlining more advanced topics of current
research interest. In addition there will be an
undergraduate presentation session where undergraduates
can present their research. Some background in topology or
geometry will be assumed from the participants.
