The math department and DUMU sponsor a number of popular Public Lectures aimed at a general audience. Undergraduates with an interest in Mathematics are encouraged to attend.
Those lectures are named “PLUM” (Public Lectures Unveiling Maths), and past topics include IRS number theory and fraudulence, category theory in a palatable way, voting in a mathematical perspective, 4D plane with the help of 3D painting, Machine learning and gender, etc.
Detailed past lectures can be found here.

Thanks to coordinators Justin Luo and David Geng for organizing the very successful 2017 Duke Math Meet on November 12. Trung Can and Neil Luo coordinated efforts by Problem Solving Seminar students and others to create original problems for the nearly 300 high school students from about 25 high school students throughout the Carolinas and Virginia. Student volunteers helped register teams, lead them to various test sites, serve breakfast and lunch, proctor exams, and other tasks.
Several dozen Duke undergraduates participated in the 2016 Virginia Tech and Putnam math competitions. Results of the Putnam competition were announced in late March.

Math 281S Problem Solving Seminar
Data+ is a nine-week summer research experience open to Duke undergraduates of all majors who are interested in exploring data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges.
DOMath provides support for small groups of undergraduates for an eight week summer research program
PRUV provides financial support for math majors’ research with faculty mentor’s leading to Graduation with Distinction.
There are opportunities to do research with faculty members for course credit during the year. Independent Study projects can also be used to earn Graduation with Distinction.
The National Science Foundation sponsors many summer undergraduate research programs at a variety of schools around the country.
