Mathematics Exchange

The Mathematics Exchange is a journal for undergraduate research in the mathematical sciences. It is a forum for student activities which are not necessarily original research but go beyond standard classroom material.  Among other information, issues contain senior thesis abstracts, extra curricular projects, and seminar and colloquium papers.


All undergraduates with majors in any of the mathematical sciences.

Submission and Review Process

We accept articles of interest to all types of mathematics undergraduates (e.g., pure, applied, actuarial, and education). Appropriate papers from other departments and other institutions are also welcome. Often the articles are written by undergraduates individually, working in teams, or working with faculty. On occasion we also include articles written solely by faculty or graduate students as long as they are accessible to undergraduates.  

Articles should be about 5-15 pages in length and should have been looked over by an academic advisor before submission. 

To submit an article, please select ONE member from the editorial board, and forward your material (including your advisor’s name and contact information) in PDF form, usually prepared by LaTeX (preferred) or Microsoft Word, to the editor you selected.

Review and selection of articles is handled by the editorial committee. Editorial changes of accepted articles are communicated through students’ advisors, when appropriate.
