Homework Graders: These students grade homework sets.
- Problem Session Holders: These students hold problem sessions in which they help students in the class understand mathematical concepts. They answer specific questions from the homework sets.
Mathematica Lab Assistants: These students supervise lab hours in Park 354 that are targeted towards specific classes. They are available for questions relevant to the program used in the lab assignments for a specific class. They also grade lab assignments.
SPSS Lab Assistants: These students supervise lab hours in Canaday. They are available for questions relevant to the program used in the lab assignments for a specific class. They also grade lab assignments.
Open Lab Hours Supervisors: These students supervise lab hours in Park 354 that are not geared towards any one class. In general, they are not meant to answer specific questions about lab assignments.
Tutors/Trig Mini Course
Private Tutors: These students are employed by the Dean's Office. They are paired up with a student for one-on-one help.
High School Math Review -Course Instructors: These students hold a four-part, mini-course near the beginning of the semester which reviews the algebra, geometry, and tri concepts necessary for Calculus.
- Office Assistant: This student assists Betsy Cancelliere with departmental administration.
A great way to start on a career path is to do a mathematically related (paid!) summer internship. Here are some examples of student experiences from recent summers:
