Undergraduate Teaching Assistantship (UTA) Programs

Math 100 UTA Program

The Math 100 UTA program serves our new Math 100 "Preparation for University-level Mathematics" course. This course is a combination of on-line and in-person instruction. UTAs, Undergraduate Teaching Assistants, are given a cohort of students to track through an on-line learning tool called ALEKS. Duties include grading, setting daily and weekly goals for students, in-person and on-line tutoring, and constant communication with students and the instructional team.  Math 100 UTAs will receive three units of upper division elective credit.  It is approximately a 10-hour per week commitment, along with a one hour class on Fridays. They will gain experience in teaching, tutoring, as well as develop their technology skills in our online hybrid environment.   Learn more about the application process and request a first interview online at
