College Students Investigate Careers

Author: Sarah Williams

This Math at Work column features four interviews conducted by UNC Chapel Hill students. They took my differential equations class during Spring 2009, when I assigned two independent miniprojects during the semester. A career investigation was one way the students could fulfill the project requirement.The students did great work on these projects, as you'll see from the four printed here. I also include my assignment prompt at the end of this article, so it can be used in another classroom.
