Links to Fine Undergraduate Papers

from Grover Furr's Classes


are links to fine undergraduate papers from the different classes I teach or have taught in the past. They are categorized by subject matter, not by the precise class.

I hope they provide valuable research results for anyone interested in these topics. In addition, they are excellent models for the kind of work undergraduate students are certainly capable of producing.

Please send me your feedback about these papers and this page. I'd like to improve both its appearance and its usefulness, with your help.
