Yeast: The Gateway To Redefining And Improving Biology Labs, Connor Loomis
Yeast: The Gateway To Redefining And Improving Biology Labs, Connor Loomis
Biology Summer Fellows
Building off of collegiate research performed during the summer of 2018, this lesson plan outlines a lab for secondary students using yeast. Yeast is an affordable and convenient organism to introduce to secondary education, and students can learn a lot about biology through it. Essentially, the goal of the lab is for students to explore the effects of certain substances on the growth of yeast. While content is emphasized, this lesson plan also looks to build studentsâ€™ understanding of science in general as well as proper laboratory skills and technique. In addition, it pushes students in their thinking as they ...

The Definite Integrals Of Cauchy And Riemann, Dave Ruch
The Definite Integrals Of Cauchy And Riemann, Dave Ruch
Analysis
Rigorous attempts to define the definite integral began in earnest in the early 1800's. One of the pioneers in this development was A. L. Cauchy (17891857). In this project, students will read from his 1823 study of the definite integral for continuous functions . Then students will read from Bernard Riemann's 1854 paper, in which he developed a more general concept of the definite integral that could be applied to functions with infinite discontinuities.

A Compact Introduction To A Generalized Extreme Value Theorem, Nicholas A. Scoville
A Compact Introduction To A Generalized Extreme Value Theorem, Nicholas A. Scoville
Topology
In a short paper published just one year prior to his thesis, Maurice Frechet gives a simple generalization one what we might today call the Extreme value theorem. This generalization is a simple matter of coming up with ``the right" definitions in order to make this work. In this mini PSP, we work through Frechet's entire 1.5 page paper to give an extreme value theorem in more general topological spaces, ones which, to use Frechet's newly coined term, are compact.
A Genetic Context For Understanding The Trigonometric Functions, Danny Otero
A Genetic Context For Understanding The Trigonometric Functions, Danny Otero
Precalculus and Trigonometry
In this project, we explore the genesis of the trigonometric functions: sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant. The goal is to provide the typical student in a precalculus course some context for understanding these concepts that is generally missing from standard textbook developments. Trigonometry emerged in the ancient Greek world (and, it is suspected, independently in China and India as well) from the geometrical analyses needed to solve basic astronomical problems regarding the relative positions and motions of celestial objects. While the Greeks (Hipparchus, Ptolemy) recognized the usefulness of tabulating chords of central angles in a circle as aids ...
