Algebra Summer Academy
This Summer Algebra Academy gives the students a "head start" on Algebra by teaching them the first five Algebra Standards. We also try to teach them how to be productive math students. There is a lot of critical thinking, problem solving, math talk, justification of answers and processes, etc. We also try to build a "college mind set" since this might be the first time these students (and their parents) think about college. That's why we are taking them on these college field trips. We also have an activity called Math Moments where everyday someone from the community comes to the class and gives a 10-15 minute presentation about how they use math in their jobs.
Students participated in campus tour, had lunch at the UC, math department activity, math base activity with engineering students, and welcome remark from Dean Beck.
