The 2022 CSU Summer Algebra Institute (SAI) is a four-to five-week in-person and virtual math enrichment program for rising 8th – 12th grade students. Participants will learn skills and techniques to improve their knowledge of mathematics and quantitative reasoning. The SAI program aligns with CSU’s ambitious Graduation Initiative 2025 goals that aim to increase graduation rates for all CSU students while eliminating equity gaps.
One primary goal of the program is to positively improve college readiness, particularly in mathematics and quantitative reasoning ability. Credentialed math instructors will teach the course content with EdReady curriculum, an adaptive online application for math readiness that designs a personalized learning path to fill students' knowledge gaps. In addition, students will participate in team learning activities, STEAM projects, "college knowledge" workshops and in-person or virtual CSU campus tours.
Approved 2022 SAI sites will receive the following support:
