VIC259: Math and Creativity (2022-2023)

This guide is intended to support students taking VIC 259 as taught by Prof. Sylvia Nickerson.

Research is Iterative Not Linear

  • You may or may not find sources of information on the exact combination of ideas and topics you are researching

  • You may have to research them separately at first: reference sources are a good place to start

  • You may have to adjust or realign your argument as your research progresses

  • You can subordinate little ideas to big ones

  • You can use research and evidence to support, situate and explore your topic or story

Understanding your topic

Gather possible avenues of inquiry to explore your research topic

FIND some background information on your topic, concept, framework, etc. by using some of the online, general or subject-specific reference tools.
