Community Outreach

Carleton mathematics and statistics students are actively involved in the Carleton and Northfield communities. These activities might arise through senior comps, summer research or a mathematics or statistics course.

Mathematics Education

Students interested in mathematics education have the opportunity to engage with schools and community organizations in the Northfield area.

  • Challenge Math Curriculum
    Carleton students have been involved writing a large collection of lesson plans for teachers, parents, or volunteers to use to provide enrichment activities for elementary students interested in mathematics.
  • The Arcadia Project
    Carleton students have created short projects for middle- or high-school students to use on their own for mathematical explorations.
  • GED Math Resource
    Carleton students designed a collection of worksheets and related videos to help adult learners studying for the math portion of the GED exam.
