For my undergraduate thesis my focus was in knot theory, a subset of topology and a newer subject in mathematics. These are not the knots we think of in our daily life. The knots I studied had no ends and no thickness. Knots as we know them in everyday life have been around since before the Greeks. The book of Kells is decorated with intricate knot work. Sailors have used them on their ships. The Incas even used them to keep track of their accounting. The Incan civilization started in modern day Knots by Number, Quipu Lauren Miller 10/11/2016

Over the summer I have been coding for SAGE as part of Google Summer of Code 2016. I feel this opportunity has strengthened both my skills as a coder and as a mathematician. SAGE is an open source math software system, used to do calculations. SAGE is made up of code available for free public use and modification. It is a collaborative effort where people from around the world can add new code, update old code, and share the changes that they make. Open source coding is a labor of Final GSOC Report Rebecca Miller 08/22/2016
