About Math Teaching Assistants
- All new teaching assistants are expected to take MATH 5000, a 1 credit department pedagogy course during the first fall semester of the student’s enrollment into the program.
- The department offers a broad range of teaching experiences to its TAs. After an initial period of teaching lower division and service courses, qualified students may be assigned to teach an upper-division course. This experience has proven to be a very valuable asset during the job search after graduation.
- The intention of the department is to continue TA support for PhD students, as long as they are in good standing academically and in their employment, for a period five years. Support beyond five years is considered on a case-by-case basis.
