Colorado State University - Pueblo Noyce Scholars Program offers summer math academy

PUEBLO – The Noyce Scholars Program at Colorado State University-Pueblo will offer a
Student Summer Mathematics Academy for students from Pueblo County and the surrounding areas entering grades 7 through 10. The free student-oriented mathematics program will focus on number sense, probability, and statistics to enhance mathematical and problem solving skills in a supportive setting.

Pre- and post-tests will be used to better address the needs of students and illustrate student progress during the eight, two-hour classes offered from 1-3 p.m. on June 17-20 and June 24-27 at CSU-Pueblo. The Academy is being held concurrently with a Summer Internship Program for university students pursuing a career in secondary mathematics education. Student instruction will be highly individualized, with a student/teacher ratio of 10 to 1.  University students participating in the concurrent Summer Internship Program will work with groups of students under the mentorship of master secondary mathematics teachers and CSU-Pueblo mathematics faculty from the Noyce Scholars Leadership Team. 
 
All Academy materials and activities will be provided at no cost to participating students, but enrollment is limited. A limited number of travel stipends to assist parents in transporting students from outlying areas to the CSU-Pueblo campus also will be available.
   
To register a child for the Academy, parents may visit www.csm.colostate-pueblo.edu/RobertNoyce  to print a copy of the application form, then mail the completed form to address provided on the application.
