Advanced Mathematics Program


The Advanced Mathematics Program supports UC Riverside's undergraduate students to help further their career in mathematics. It is primarily composed of a month-long FREE Summer School meant to prepare students for success in Abstract Algebra (Math 140 or 171)  and Real Analysis (Math 150A or 151A). The Summer School will be taught by four approachable graduate student instructors working in pairs. It will also have weekly speakers from career mathematicians.

This year's program will run from July 2nd 2018 through July 27th 2018 from 1pm to 4pm Monday through Friday in Surge 268. The first two weeks will be on Real Analysis and the last two on Abstract Algebra. It will be possible for students to only sign up for one of those portions if they desire.  


It is heavily suggested for students to have completed Math 10A and Math 11 (or CS 11) by Spring 2018. It is meant for undergraduates who have just finished lower division coursework and are starting upper division math. The Real Analysis section of the summer school will be useful for any math major  at UCR since it is required for the Pure, Applied, and Secondary Teaching degrees. The Abstract Algebra section is primarily for Pure Math majors to prepare for Math 171 but it should also be useful for Secondary Teaching majors who plan to take Math 140.

Diversity and Inclusion:

The Advanced Mathematics Program seeks to uphold UC Riverside's  Nondiscrimination policy http://diversity.ucr.edu/policies.html. In addition, we envision a more diverse and inclusive field of mathematics. To this end, besides not charging for participation in AMP, we have secured limited funding for female and/or minority participants of the program. At the end of the registration form there will be a link to another form if you wish to apply for this funding. Then you will have to self identify your gender and ethnicity to apply for the funding. You will also have to submit a brief statement on your future career goals.  Priority will be given to participants who are signed up for the entire four weeks of the program.


Registration is now closed please contact tmcel001@ucr.edu for help. 



The Advanced Mathematics Program is a joint project of Math faculty, staff, and graduate students to provide additional extra curricular support for our undergraduate math majors. The graduate students are organized under the AMP Lead Organizer which is an appointed position though the Math Department’s Graduate Student Association.

Funding and Support:

The Advanced Mathematics Program has received a Mini-Grant to support female participants in our 2018 program from Women Achieving Through Community Hubs in the United States: WATCH: US. In addition, AMP has been awarded a MAA TENSOR-SUMMA (Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement) grant which will be used to support underrepresented minority participants in our 2018 program. https://www.maa.org/programs-and-communities/outreach-initiatives/tensor-summa-grants 

The UC Riverside Mathematics Department is providing space, funding for instructors and administrative support for the program.
