Tutoring, Outreach and Service to the Community
Private K-12 Tutoring
The mathematics and statistics department maintains a list of students who are interested in tutoring K-12 students in the local community. For a list of these students, and the age groups with which they are most interested in working, contact Mrs. Bridget Murphy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Valparaiso University Department of Mathematics and Statistics is proud to be associated with MATHCOUNTS. MATHCOUNTS is a national math enrichment, coaching, and competition program that promotes middle-school mathematics achievement in every U.S. state and territory.
Since 1999, the department has hosted the Northwest Indiana Regional Competition, attracting more than 60 students from eight middle schools. This event, held each February, involves the entire department. Faculty members serve as event coordinator, head grader, scoring judge, and countdown moderator; more than 30 Valpo students assist in the event as greeters, proctors, graders, and data managers.
