CSU-Pueblo Noyce Scholars Program offers summer math academy


PUEBLO – The Noyce Scholars Program at Colorado State University-Pueblo will offer the Second Annual Summer Mathematics Academy for students from Pueblo County and the surrounding areas entering grades 7 through 10.
The free student-oriented mathematics program will develop, extend, and strengthen key problem solving and communications skills related to algebra and number sense in a fun, supportive setting. This year’s academy will be limited to 100 registrants.  Students who will benefit from the academy will include those in grades 7 through 10 who have not completed Algebra 2, as well as those who are struggling with math, and those who need an extra challenge.
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 16-19 and June 23-26 at CSU-Pueblo. Daily work will include both individual and small group activities.
 
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.
