Mathematics students at the UM - Flint have many opportunitites available to further their learning and/or obtain financial support.
Summer REUs give mathematics students a chance to go beyond traditional coursework to engage in legitimately new mathematical research. Students receive funding from the NSF to spend several weeks at host institutions all over the country, culminating frequently at presentations at national conferences or publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Topics and institutions vary from year to year. Click on the "more" link for a list of upcoming REUs.
The best way to learn something is to teach it. One of the most valuable ways to master mathematical skills, and to get paid while doing it, is as a tutor or supplemental instructor for mathematics courses. Tutors engage in 1-on-1 meetings with students or in an open mathematics tutor lab on campus, while SIs follow along with a specific section, attending classes and proctoring review sessions.
