The Supplemental Instruction Program Initiative - NEW

Dear Student,
I hope you are well and enjoying the semester! I am reaching out to invite you to apply to be part of a spccial initative happening in 2021/2022. We are looking for students who have excelled in MAT 105, MAT 108, and/or STA 250 to act as a SI leader this upcoming semester in special sections of MAT 105, MAT 108, and STA 250. Instructors have shared interests in working with SI leaders and will send referrals my way.

By acting as an SI leader you will:

  • Participate in program training 10 hours per week
  • Attend all class sessions
  • Develop supplemental materials
  • Facilitate weekly course workshops called SI sessions
  • Attend developmental workshops 2 hours per month
  • Post weekly reflections on blog
  • Have the option to continue on as a tutor with the MSRC for an additional 10 hours per week

If you are interested in learning more about this exciting opportunity, see the short videos below and please email me at I look forward to hearing from you!

Learning Outcomes for the General Education

Each area of the General Education curriculum has specific learning outcomes. As students progress through the curriculum, they will be asked to demonstrate mastery of these skills and knowledge areas. Identifying the learning outcome of a particular curricular area, helps students understand what they are expected to learn and why. The learning outcomes for each area of John Jay's general education program are identified below.

  • Interpret and draw appropriate inferences from quantitative representations, such as formulas, graphs, or tables.
  • Use algebraic, numerical, graphical, or statistical methods to draw accurate conclusions and solve mathematical problems.
  • Represent quantitative problems expressed in natural language in a suitable mathematical format.
  • Effectively communicate quantitative analysis or solutions to mathematical problems in written or oral form.
  • Evaluate solutions to problems for reasonableness using a variety of means, including informed estimation.
  • Apply mathematical methods to problems in other fields of study.
