PUMP Project Description
PUMP is a project funded by the NSF Division of Mathematical
Sciencesunder the NSF program Workforce in the Mathematical
Sciences. This project is hosted by the Department of
Mathematics at CSUN and focuses on increasing the
participation of highly qualified students from the San
Fernando Valley in Mathematical Sciences Ph.D. programs.
Activities include summer institutes, weekly seminars,
honors calculus for high-school students, advanced
mathematics course work and undergraduate research projects
for math majors, and problem-solving sessions. With these
activities and under the guidance of the faculty involved in
this project, students will acquire the maturity needed for
initiation to mathematical discovery, and will also broaden
their vision of mathematics.
HS PUMP is open to incoming 11th graders who have
completed Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. It is
designed to help you increase your appreciation and
understanding of mathematics.
For information about the PUMP project and associated
programs please contact any of the PI's.
