The Lehman College

*
Rigorous Mathematics with Proofs for High School Students in the Bronx*

Lehman College Math Circle members are mathematically talented high school students who come to Lehman College to enhance their mathematics education. See our past events and Spring 2008 events. This Fall our only activity is our College Now Precalculus Class.

Most math circle members take College Now math courses after school. The courses are fully funded through the College Now program with paid faculty, free textbooks and college credit. Mr. Gantz is the coordinator and Prof. Sormani is the math adviser. You may also contact a college now liasson at a participating high school. All students who participate in these courses become permanent members of the Lehman College Math Circle.

One course currently offered every semester is
College Now Precalculus.
Our first semester we had students from 5 different hich schools learning a rigorous
precalculus with unit circle trigonometry, exponential and
rational functions and proofs.
It is a four credit course which covers the same
material as Lehman College's MAT172 and students must place into
MAT172 on the CUNY math placement exam to take the course.
See our
syllabus from Spring 2006. Like all college courses, this is a homework
intensive class.
We regularly offer

**Seniors applying to college:** do not forget to apply to the CUNY Honors College
and the CSM Scholarship Program when applying to Lehman College. Most of the faculty
in the Lehman College Math and Computer Science Department are also members
of the CUNY Graduate Center doctoral faculty. Our
math and computer science majors participate in undergraduate research
and some even work for IBM in a special internship program
arranged by Professor Keen. ** Remember: get the best undergraduate education you can from the
best research faculty and you can achieve doctorates yourselves! **
