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 121. Pre-calculus Mathematics, Math 180. Calculus I, Math 181. Calculus II, Math 210. Calculus III, Math 215. Introduction to Advanced Mathematics*. Concurrent enrollment of mathematics courses is required.
ESP Course Offerings for Fall 2022
MATH 179 Emerging Scholars Workshop for Calculus I
CRN: 13110, TR 11-11:150am
Note: MATH 179 is a new course course for students who score a 77-79 on the ALEKS placement exam–i.e., at the MATH 121 (Pre-Calculus) level–but due to their major or interest, want to take MATH 180. While space is limited, students enrolled in MATH 179 may also enroll in MATH 180 with a 77-79 on the ALEKS placement exam. Note: If MATH 179 is full, students who wish to take MATH 180 should retake the ALEKS placement test prior to enrolling in a math course and score an 80 or above.
MATH 182 Emerging Scholars Workshop for Calculus II
CRN: 38045, TR 11-12:50pm
MATH 211 Emerging Scholars Workshop for Calculus III
CRN: 38280, Tuesday 10-11:50am
MATH 294 Special Topics in Mathematics*
CRN: 23407, Tuesday 12:00-1:50pm
*Students enrolled in MATH 215 plus MATH 294. Please note that if you decide to drop both courses past the add/drop deadline; this will count as two late drops instead of one.
Students must request departmental approval for MATH 179 and MATH 294 prior to enrolling.
