Lower Level Math Courses
The following web pages for selected lower level math courses contain
primarily information for the start of the semester.
During the semester, check with your course head or
section leader to see if the site will be updated with homework
assignments, exam information, etc.|
|Math Ma||Introduction to Functions and Calculus I|
|Math Mb||Introduction to Functions and Calculus II|
|Math 1a||Introduction to Calculus|
|Math 1b||Calculus, Series and Differential Equations|
|Math 19a||Modeling and Differential Equations for the Life Sciences|
|Math 19b||Linear Algebra, Probability, and Statistics for the Life Sciences|
Topics from Single and Multivariable Calculus for Social Sciences|
|Math 21a||Multivariable Calculus|
|Math 21b||Linear Algebra and Differential Equations|
For other math courses, check with
the person teaching the course to see if a web page
will be created/maintained.
The FAS registrar maintains a
complete listing of the faculty, courses and descriptions of math courses.
Math Question Center
The Math Question Center (shortly MQC),
is a place that you can drop by to work on or ask questions about
your math homework, for classes up to the Math 21b level.
It's staffed by Course Assistants and Graduate Students
who are available to help you as you do
your homework. The MQC is also a great place to
meet and work with other people in your course. |
The center is typically open from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Sundays through
Thursdays. Students in Math 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b are encouraged to
drop by. Students in Math M
may visit the Math M study center in SC 216 from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Sundays
through Thursdays. A staffing schedule is posted on the Math M website.

MQC Web page maintained by Yu_Wen Hsu

- If you are new to the concentration or thinking about concentrating
in math, contact the Undergraduate Studies Coordinator
Cindy Jiminez (rm 334, email@example.com) )
to be added to the email list of concentrators.
The following pamphlets contain useful information about math
courses, concentrating in math, courses in math, honors and graduate schools.
Get them here, or see Cindy Jiminez, the Undergraduate Studies Coordinator
in Rm 334. |

Admission and financial aid
Information on admission and financial aid for students can be obtained from
Harvard Admission and Financial aid office web site. It provides also a
list of frequently asked questions .
If you're a concentrator, or you're just casually
interested in mathematics, the
is a great place
to meet other like-minded people, get some great information about
grad school, summer opportunities, job opportunities,
and hear some
(or eat pies at pi-day).
Please don't ask to join the math club from outside Harvard.
The undergraduate Mathematics Colloquium
(aka Math Table) sponsored by the Mathematics Department, meets every Tuesday night
at 5:30 in Mather House Private Dining Rooms A & B. Its purpose is to expose students to diverse topics
of pure and applied mathematics and to suggest potential Senior Thesis topics.
Speakers include faculty, guest speakers, graduate students and undergraduate
students. All students, irrespective of their mathematical backgrounds, are strongly
encouraged to attend and/or to give talks. The two best undergraduate talks at the
colloquium each year will win the endowed Rogers Prize. For more information,
please contact Noam Elkies (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In the separate
Math table page,
upcoming talks as well as previous talks and winners can be found.

The Office for Undergraduate Research Initiatives (OURI) is a hub of information and guidance for
undergraduates who may be interested in conducting research to
enhance their academic experience while at Harvard. The
has been created to provide general information about it.
