Press Release

PUEBLO - The CSU-Pueblo Noyce Scholars Program will offer an eight-day Summer Math Academy from 1-3 p.m. on June 13 - 16 and June 20 - 23. This student-oriented program will focus on algebraic thinking and proportional reasoning.

The Academy is open to students entering grades 7 - 10 in Pueblo and surrounding areas, including those who are home schooled, attending a private school, or enrolled in Pueblo City School District 60 and Pueblo County School District 70. Interested students who are struggling with mathematics, those who are in need of some extra challenge, as well as those "in the middle" can all benefit from the program.

Academy instruction will be highly individualized, with university and college students participating in a concurrent Summer Internship Program working with groups of students under the mentorship of master secondary mathematics teachers and CSU-Pueblo mathematics faculty. Daily work will include both individual and small group activities. All students will also complete individual pre- and post-tests to determine how much was learned.

The Academy is free to participating students, but registration is required. Registration forms are available at www.csm.csupueblo.edu/RobertNoyce and must be returned no later than June 3. Parents will be sent confirmation letters during the second week of June.

This year marks the Fourth Annual Summer Math Academy to be sponsored by the CSU-Pueblo Noyce Scholars Program. The CSU-Pueblo Noyce Scholars program is a collaborative venture of the Mathematics Department and the Teacher Education Program funded by the National Science Foundation (Grant Number DUE 1136426). Partners in the grant include Pueblo City Schools, Pueblo School District 70, Lamar Community College, Pikes Peak Community College, Pueblo Community College and Trinidad State Junior College.
