Thank you for your interest in Learning Communities!
Learning Communities are available to incoming first-year students entering the colleges of Arts & Science, Agriculture & Bioresources, Kinesiology, Engineering, and St. Thomas More in the fall of 2014. Sign-up begins in May 2014 and continues (on a first-come, first-served basis) until mid-June. Advising your students to join a First-Year Learning Community at the University of Saskatchewan is one of the best ways you can help them on their road to success.
This website includes detailed information on course block options, programs and majors, course descriptions, how Learning Communities help students meet requirements for professional programs and non-direct entry colleges, and much more—all of which help you advise your students on how to choose the Learning Community that is right for them. We suggest that you start at our About Learning Communities page for general Learning Communities information and the potential benefits to your students, and then move through the College sections (based on the individual interests and aspirations of your students).
Note: Sign-up in a Learning Community includes student registration in that block of Learning Community classes (in advance of the opening of general first-year registration).
Helping your Students Succeed in University Math
Do you have students who are taking math in first term of their first year at the University of Saskatchewan? Are you looking for ways to help support their transition and maximize their potential for success?
First, we strongly encourage students to consider starting their university career in a Learning Community. The Math options in Learning Communities have typically included:
- College of Kinesiology:
- KI01 (Biology 120.3 - Kinesiology 122.3 - Math 104.3)
- KI02 (English 114.3 - Kinesiology 122.3 - Math 104.3)
In addition to Learning Communities, all incoming students planning on taking Math in first term of first year should consider enrolling in the Math Readiness Course during summer.
The Math Readiness Course is a non-credit math review, for students who wish to refresh their high school math skills in preparation for university math. The 2013 Math Readiness Summer Camp runs around August 19–30 (weekdays). For more information, download the Math Readiness flyer (please note that the flyer is valid, though the dates have changed) or visit the Centre for Continuing and Distance Education website.
