# Learning Assistant Program

Learning Assistants (LAs) are undergraduates who facilitate small-group interaction in our large-enrollment courses.

### Responsibilities

LAs help transform large-enrollment courses by creating environments in which students can interact with one another, engage in collaborative problem solving, articulate and defend their ideas, and explicitly discuss the nature of mathematics.

LAs must have room in their schedule to lead their assigned lab sections (at least two), attend the associated class lectures, and enroll in a SCI-5050, (The Science of Learning), course. Additional hours may be spent doing prep work for the lab, holding office hours and attending team meetings with the course instructor.

### Supported Mathematics Courses

- MATH 1010 (Intermediate Algebra)
- MATH 1210 (Calculus I)
