Math Platoon is a collaboration between Dr. Colleen Mitchell of the Department of Mathematics and IVETS. When Dr. Mitchell's husband, a Marine Corps Veteran, heard about IVETS's call for math professors to start a tutoring program, he told her how much of a difference this program would have made when he returned to college for his degree in engineering. She decided to make the program a reality.
Dr. Mitchell and a team of graduate students began holding twice-weekly tutoring sessions for military-connected students in January 2020. The meetings moved to Zoom when the university switched to virtual instruction in March 2021, but are now fully in-person again for the Fall 2021 semester.
Math Platoon meets twice a week in 208 Calvin Hall:
12:30 to 2:00 pm on Mondays
3:30 to 5:00 pm on Wednesdays
The sessions begin on 30 August, 2021 and on 8 December, 2021.
