Math 100 UTA Program

The Math 100 UTA (Undergraduate Teaching Assistant) program serves our Math 100 courses. These courses have 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 consistent communication with students and the instructional team.  Math 100 UTAs will gain experience in teaching and tutoring, as well as develop their technology skills in our online hybrid environment.
