- Computer Science 143, Object Oriented Programming with Robots, or another programming based computer science course with approval of the Mathematics Program, preferably before beginning the senior project

**Additional requirements:**

### Moderation Requirements

- Students in the Mathematics Program are expected to follow the standard Bard procedure for Moderation (PDF).
- Students moderating into Mathematics must demonstrate a basic knowledge of LaTeX by submitting a page or two of mathematics written in LaTeX. The content of these pages is determined by the student; homework from a course, or material learned from a mathematics text, are possibilities.

### Senior Project

Titles of all recent senior projects in mathematics, and PDF copies of some of them, may be found on the Student Research page.

During the course of writing a Senior Project in Mathematics, the student must:

- Give a brief Prospectus Talk describing the project in the first semester of her senior project (12 minute presentation).
- Submit a short write-up toward the end of the first semester (10 pages, written in LaTeX using the Bard senior project style file.)
- Have a midway senior project board at the start of the second semester.
- Have a final senior project board after the project is completed; the board commences with a 20 minute presentation that is open to the public.
- Participate in the SM&C Division Senior Project Poster Session. Exact dates and deadlines for the above events for the current academic year may be found here.
