Emerging Scholars Program
Mathematics Workshops in the Emerging Scholars Program Heading link
The Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) offers an opportunity to work on challenging mathematics problems with classmates through innovative techniques of cooperative learning.
Students meet for a regularly scheduled workshop weekly to work collaboratively in small groups on math problems that emphasize the key ideas of the corresponding math course (see below). A trained teaching assistant oversees the workshops. Students receive one hour of credit (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory) for ESP courses. Note: MATH 294 is a graded course and students will be assigned an A, B, C, D, or F instead of Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
When offered, ESP workshops are offered in conjunction with, and supplement required mathematics courses: Math 180. Calculus I, Math 181. Calculus II, Math 210. Calculus III, Math 215. Introduction to Advanced Mathematics*. Additionally, in the spring 2024 term, we are offering additional support courses for MATH 313 and MATH 330 in the form of two specific sections of MATH 294. Students enrolled in MATH 313 and MATH 330 are highly encouraged to register for the appropriate 294 section as well. Concurrent enrollment of mathematics courses is required.
