## Project IMPACT and Summer Camp

Increasing Mathematics Potential across Texas (IMPacT) is a collaborative NSF-sponsored project between UT Dallas and UT Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) to better prepare students for graduate studies and careers in mathematics while enhancing diversity among applicants.

This new initiative aims to leverage the expertise and resources of both institutions to improve the educational outcomes of students in upper-level mathematics courses through active learning at both institutions. Five classes (Abstract Algebra 2, Mathematical Analysis 2, Numerical Analysis, Problem Solving, and Mathematical Statistics) will be taught in a blended format, with lectures attended synchronously by students at both institutions and taught jointly by staff from both institutions.
