Description 
Sequences play an important role in the mathematical sciences and other fields. Students will work on team projects to enumerate sequential objects and their properties. One emphasis will be to develop and solve conjectures in several combinatorial and algorithmic areas, as well as the tools necessary for identifying such conjectures.
Qualifications 
- Enrolled full time as an undergraduate in a U.S. institution during the program - A minimum GPA of 3.2
