There will be a nominal requirement that mentors have passed their Tier II exams; however, preference will be given to applicants with more advanced standing. Mentors will be selected based on teaching and mentoring experience as well as content knowledge in the mentees’ interest areas. A desire to share your passion and knowledge with your mentee is the main requirement!
The nominal requirement for mentees will be completion of the calculus sequence, though this requirement may be waived in special circumstances. Mentees will be selected based on their interest in learning advanced mathematics, ability to self-motivate, and desire for independent study of mathematics. The desire to devote at least four hours to learning advanced mathematics on top of other coursework is the main requirement.
