Beyond the Classroom
Per the National Survey of Student Engagement, early exposure to high-impact practices has produced greater gains in learning, graduation, and retention compared to what normally occurs with traditional instruction.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Cameron University strongly values High-Impact Practices and utilizes them to help our students develop communication, problem solving, and critical thinking skills essential in a workplace. At the Department of Mathematical Sciences, students have opportunities to complete an internship or community-based project connecting classroom learning with real-world experiences and to develop research skills and evidence-based analyses.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences provides the following High-Impact Practices:
- Undergraduate Research
- Capstone Courses and Projects
- Project-Based Learning
- Collaborative Assignments and Projects
