Article Reading Assignments

Reading questions for students to consider/answer as they read through math modeling papers. This document is constructed with the idea that a student will read the paper (or portions of the paper) in several passes. The grouping of the questions in Step 1, Step 2, etc., break the questions down into what students might consider in a first pass, a second pass, etc. with an eye towards the student developing a rubric for what makes a well written math modeling paper.

Research Log Template

Template for research log that I use with my research students. Template contains definition of new commands in TeX for goals, log entries, meeting notes, and reflections. I have students maintain this file in a shared folder while they are doing research. My research students are expected to make goals for each week, a log entry for each day they work on their research project, and a reflection entry at the end of each week.

Team Member Evaluation Rubric

We developed these team member evaluations for a summer research program where we had teams of mathematicians and biologists.  I'm not sure they were that useful after the research was done, but it might be more useful as a way to discuss what we expect from our team members.
