at the

American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California

organized by

Yewande Olubummo,
Joe Omojola,
and Roselyn Williams

## Original Announcement

This workshop will introduce undergraduate faculty to current research opportunities in linear algebra and
number theory and will equip them with the necessary tools to mentor students in
undergraduate research in mathematics.
Lectures at the workshop will provide background information and
introduce open problems. The majority of the workshop will be spent
working on problems, reporting on progress, and formulating plans
for future work.

Preference will be given to faculty who teach and advise substantial
numbers of minority students.
