    1. Assist students taking courses in which the Teaching Assistant has demonstrated mastery.
    2. Assist with grading assignments that require no teacher interpretation.

Students interested in being a Teaching Assistant are required to fill out a short application available from their teacher or the math department chair. Teaching Assistants are typically supervised by an individual teacher, whose signature is required at the time of application. Students will be selected based on department needs and student qualifications. In some cases, students taking AP math courses will have priority in being a Teaching Assistant due to their qualifications in offering peer assistance.
