USU Data Science Club
The USU Data Science Club is a student chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA). Its purpose is to provide aspiring data scientists and statisticians opportunities to network with fellow students, gain exposure to statistical and data analysis tools (primarily in R), and apply these tools to various data analysis projects. Presentations are made on various statistical topics every other week, with collaborative data analysis sessions held on the alternate weeks.

Are you an inservice teacher in Utah seeking a secondary mathematics endorsement?
UMEP The Utah Mathematics Endorsement Project (UMEP) offers mathematics courses at USU Statewide Campuses and extension sites for Utah's public school teachers.
Are you seeking a graduate degree?
Master of Mathematics Program: This degree program is specifically designed for secondary mathematics teachers who seek to deepen their knowledge and understanding in the mathematical sciences as it relates to their profession. We have some masters level courses available through distance delivery around the state of Utah. For more information on this, contact Brynja Kohler
For general information about our department's graduate programs contact our graduate director, John Stevens.
Are you looking for classroom resources?
NLVM The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) provides a library of uniquely interactive, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction (K-12 emphasis).
Would you like to become a secondary mathematics teacher?
If you haven't yet graduated from college, then get a bachelors in mathematics education. Contact Math Advising.
If you have a degree, you can become a licensed mathematics teacher either by obtaining a second bachelors (recommended if you need to take lots of mathematics courses), or a master of mathematics (to qualify you must have substantial mathematics coursework completed). Either of these degrees will qualify you for Utah's Teacher Salary Supplement Program.
If you are already a teacher, then take coursework for mathematics endorsements through UMEP.
