Here is an incomplete list of papers that would be appropriate for class presentations:

Learning Outcomes: See the Math 675R or Math 687R pages on the BYU math website.

Preventing Sexual Harassment:  As required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the university prohibits sex discrimination against any participant in its education programs or activities. Title IX also prohibits sexual harassment--including sexual violence--committed by or against students, university employees, and visitors to campus. As outlined in university policy, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking are considered forms of “Sexual Misconduct” prohibited by the university.

University policy requires any university employee in a teaching, managerial, or supervisory role to report incidents of Sexual Misconduct that come to their attention through various forms including face-to-face conversation, a written class assignment or paper, class discussion, email, text, or social media post. If you encounter Sexual Misconduct, please contact the Title IX Coordinator at or 801-422-2130 or Ethics Point at or 1-888-238-1062 (24 hours). Additional information about Title IX and resources available to you can be found at

Students with Disabilities:  BYU is committed to providing reasonable accommodation to qualified persons with disabilities.  If you have any disability that may adversely affect your success in this course, please contact the University Accessibility Center office (2170 WSC) at 422-2767.  Services deemed appropriate will be coordinated with the student and instructor by that office.

Honor Code:  In keeping with the principles of the BYU Honor Code, students are expected to be honest in all of their academic work.  Academic honesty means, most fundamentally, that any work you present as your own must in fact be your own work and not that of another.  Violations of this principle may result in a failing grade in the course and additional disciplinary action by the university.  Students are also expected to adhere to the Dress and Grooming Standards.  It is the university's expectation, and my own expectation in class, that each student will abide by all Honor Code standards.  Please call the Honor Code Office (4440 WSC) at 801-422-2847 if you have questions about those standards.
