General UAS Links
The following links are all for the Juneau Campus. Most of these services are also available for students at the Ketchikan and Sitka campuses. Students taking mathematics or statistics courses through Ketchikan or Sitka are encouraged to browse the Ketchikan Campus Homepage
or Sitka Campus Homepage
, as appropriate, for student support services offered on these campuses.
- The UAS Student Services Homepage contains useful information on most issues relevant to student life at UAS.
- The Juneau Campus Learning Center Homepage contains information on resources available to students. This is a great place to study and work on homework in a group setting. Math majors and students with strong communication skills and abilities in mathematics and statistics are encouraged to obtain part-time tutoring postions at the Learning Center.
- The Information Technology Helpdesk Homepage contains information on Computer Lab schedules. It is the place to go if you are looking for experts at accessing university IT resources, such as academic technology, email, and network access. The Helpdesk also assists Juneau campus users with desktop and network technical problems by providing initial troubleshooting and coordination with technicians.
- The Egan Library Student Resources Page has useful infomation on conducting searches of sources. It also has email addresses of library staff who can help in various ways.
Mathematics Awareness Links
- Each year, for the past several years, the mathematics community has observed April as Math Awareness Month. The Mathematics Awareness Website is designed for this very purpose with the goal to increase public understanding of and appreciation for mathematics. This site also has links to math awareness pages from earlier years.
Careers and Graduate School
- Information on opportunities for current undergraduate mathematics majors are available on the Undergraduate Mathematics Majors Page of the AMS website. This page provides information on graduate programs
in mathematics and the various ways in which graduate students of
mathematics may fund their graduate studies. The information also
includes various summer opportunities available through NSF and REU
sponsered programs, internships and jobs,career options/profiles for
mathematics majors, etc.
- Some more sources and tips on career options/profiles for careers and tips for choosing graduate schools in the mathematical sciences can be found on the MAA Career Profiles Page, the AWM Career Resources Page, the SIAM Students' Page and the NSF publication on Opportunities for the Mathematical Sciences.
- Tips on choosing graduate schools in the mathematical sciences can be found on the MAA Students Page,
Careers in Teaching
- Math for America (MfA)is a non-profit organization that invests in teachers of mathematics at the K-12 levels. Information on opportunities available through MfA can be found at www.mathforamerica.org.
- Project SEED, a national mathematics program, offers challenging and fulfilling careers in teaching at a variety of grade levels. More on this organization and opportunities can be found at projectseed.org.
