An 'Undergraduate Ambassador' Module in Mathematics

An 'Undergraduate Ambassador' Module in Mathematics at NUI Galway

This elective module will offer students the opportunity to be placed with a teacher in a second level school. During this placement, the student will engage in activities supporting the mathematical learning of the second level students. These activities will include classroom observation and assistance, direct teaching, coordination of extra-curricular mathematical activities, and a special project of the student's own devising. The civic engagement dimension of their activity will give students space to explore their sense of social responsibility, and to experience the reward arising from successful personal contribution to a collaborative learning effort.
