Studies in systems ranging from humans to lower vertebrates have demonstrated that neural circuits can be modulated by steroid hormones. Many organs in the body are receptive to steroid hormones, which exert their actions either indirectly via the circulation or directly via local production in tissues, including the brain.

Mathematics Preparation Program

Mathematics Preparation Program  Sponsored by the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Technology   FOR INCOMING FRESHMEN AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: Get a head start!  Register for MP2 and get the support you need to be successful in college. As an incoming freshman, you are eligible to register for the Mathematics Preparation Program (MP2) before you officially begin your college career. MP2 offers an on-line mathematics course that will prepare students for college-level mathematics using a mastery approach to learning mathematics.  The mastery approach allows students to “test out” of content areas they already know.  When students experience roadblocks, they will receive various forms of support, such as video tutorials, guided assistance for homework problems and on-line tutoring, before being provided additional opportunities to “test in” to new content areas.  Additionally, students will participate in on-line discussion with a mathematics instructor using video conference capabilities, have access to peer tutors on-line, and will take 2 in-person exams. The exams can be taken on the Dover Campus on a specified date, or can be taken at their former high school (pending approval).  These activities will help students build a solid foundation of fundamental mathematical concepts and procedures necessary for success in college mathematics courses and college courses with a quantitative reasoning emphasis.  Students may earn college credits toward graduation depending on the content areas they successfully completed on-line.  Students attending the MP2 summer course will… Build effective study skills and learn the mathematics necessary to be successful in their college courses Build competence and confidence as they learn to be independent and responsible while using the self-paced on-line approach Improve their understanding of mathematical rules, formulas, and equations. Program Options MP2 offers the convenience of flexible registration options.  See application for program cost and details. MP2 Summer Course Information 8-week on-line Summer Program for any incoming DSU freshmen, or 5-week on-campus Summer Program for any local Delaware incoming DSU freshmen Application deadlines… See application for deadlines Space is limited, so apply early.

CMNST Dean's Distinguished Lecturer Series

About the Lecture Series The Dean's Distinguished Lecturer Series occurs several times throughout the academic year. Featuring foremost speakers and researchers, these talks are sponsored by the Office of the Dean of the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology and are free and open to the public. A more specialized, technical lecture, geared toward science majors, faculty, professionals (and other interested persons) is generally scheduled to take place during the morning hours on the day of the public, evening talk.       Back to the College Home Page

College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences & Technology Teaching Assistant Program A program to increase retention and graduation rates of students in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines The Science and Mathematics Skills-Development Program, a program initially funded by Title III, supports the incorporation of teaching assistants in several of the gatekeeper courses. The aim of the program supports the College's initiative to add 1 - to - 2 hours of student exposure to mathematics and science coursework. The goal of these additional recitations and study sessions is to enhance students’ understanding of the course materials through an enhancement of their problem-solving skills and scientific reading and writing skills. Offered during the fall and spring semesters, these sessions are offered in small-class settings (averaging about 10 students, with an upper limit of 15 students) and are supervised by qualified instructors who have demonstrated their mastery of the material to be taught. Teaching Assistants (TA) for the program consist of a mix of adjunct professors, graduate students, and/or talented junior and senior undergraduate students. TAs receive compensation, enhanced teaching skills and are afforded opportunities for professional development.  For more information about this program, please contact your department chairperson or department designee, or Ms. Vanessa D. Nesbit.   Back to Support Programs Web Page Back to College Web Page  

Check with your instructor to find out if a TA is available for your course
