1.  What is a DRP?
        A DRP is a “Directed Reading Program” which pairs undergraduate math students with graduate mentors for a semester-long reading project. Projects are chosen based on mentee interest, with guidance from mentors, and range from working towards understanding a particular theorem to reading an interesting textbook.
      2. What are the benefits of a DRP?
        For undergraduates:
        • Chance to learn math one on one and see topics outside the standard curriculum
        • Learn fundamental skills: how to read proofs, how to give effective presentations
        • Makes grad school more approachable
        • Free book!
        For graduate students:
        • Get experience mentoring
        • It’s fun!
      3. What are the expectations?
        For undergraduates:
        • About 4 hours per week working on the reading
        • One meeting with your mentor each week
        • Give a short presentation to the other participants at the end of the semester
        • Submit a short summary/abstract (roughly between one paragraph and half a page) of what you have studied during the semester. This is a good chance to practice writing and to elaborate on things you might not have been able to cover on the presentation!
        For graduate students:
        • Meet with your mentee once a week
        • Help the mentee come up with a reading project
