The California State University (CSU), Office of the Chancellor is pleased to offer the 2021 CSU Summer Algebra Institute (SAI). Due to COVID-19 safety measures, 2021 SAI programs will be delivered virtually. SAI is a four to five-week 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. In its 15th year, the 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 knowledge gaps. In addition, students will participate in team learning activities, STEAM projects, “college knowledge" workshops and virtual CSU campus tours.
