What are the Peer Study Sessions?
The MSU Denver Mathematics Peer Study Program (MPSP) is a series of instructor-supervised learning sessions organized to supplement the course material from MTH 1080, MTH 1110, MTH 1112 and MTH 1310. It is designed to provide a structured environment of small groups where students will study and receive help from an instructor. Studying together is one of the best ways to learn, and since its inception in Fall 1993, the MPSP has been extremely successful in helping students learn the course material and develop self-confidence. Most of all, students who have participated enjoy the material more and have a high rate of success in their corresponding math class. Beginning the Fall, 2013 semester, there will be a $90 program fee for peer study.
Who is Eligible for Peer Study?
Who is Required to take Peer Study?
Like other courses, Mathematics Peer Study Sessions have CRN numbers, and you add the sessions to your schedule through web registration. There is a $90 program fee for Peer Study. The class does not appear on your transcript. However, due to limited size, it is important that those students who are registered for Peer Study attend regularly. Additionally, students required to take Peer Study and who fail to attend will be dropped from the peer study and the corresponding math course.
PRIOR TO ENROLLMENT IN THEIR DESIRED MATH COURSE, STUDENTS WHOSE TEST SCORES ARE IN THE "WINDOW" MUST SEE AN ADVISOR IN THE ACADEMIC ADVISING CENTER (SSB 170) OR THE MATHEMATICS PEER STUDY OFFICES (SI 1030/1032) TO SIGN THE PEER STUDY AGREEMENT.
