I've decided to major in mathematics but I need to know something: so, what exactly does a graduate student in mathematics do?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I assume a grad student in physics, chemistry, or biology will spend their academic time in class and performing experiments with there professors, but a mathematician has no experiments to perform.
