Dates and Times to be determined



The Jumpstart Program is open to incoming Mathematics graduate students only. 





MATH 206 Algebra

Instructor:  Professor Vladimir Baranovsky

MATH 205 Analysis

Instructor: Professor Patrick Guidotti

MATH 206 Algebra

Teaching Assistant: Matthew Levy

MATH 205 Analysis

Teaching Assistant: Greg Zitelli


The online courses will essentially consist of the material covered in the 205 (Analysis) and 206 (Algebra) sequences, which will not be for credit or units.


The courses are meant to bring newly admitted students up to speed with the expectations of the program by refreshing important undergraduate material and introducing some new material. The courses will run from August 2018 to September 2018 and will be complemented by an intensive problem-solving week on campus, scheduled tentatively 9/10-9/14/18 and concluded with an assessment exam (tentative 9/17, 9/18/18). The latter will inform a recommendation as to what courses to take for the first year in the program.


Students who are interested in attending this program (attendance is strongly recommended) 
should contact Donna McConnell dmcconne@math.uci.edu. 

Housing can be arranged via the UCI housing office by requesting an early move-in for the fall quarter.

**Foreign students who plan to attend the Jumpstart program will have to reflect the earlier arrival date into the US on the VISA/I-20 documents.  The International Center also requires proof of $7,700 in US dollars for estimated cost for living expenses during summer.


*Please notify Donna if you will be requesting early arrival on your visa/I-20 documents and if you will need early housing.
