Students working in the Polya Lab

The Polya Approach

"To produce students who are empowered as independent active learners and graduates who are life-long learners not likely to shy away from opportunities simply because they involve learning some mathematics."

The Polya Math Learning Center uses technology to individualize the learning experience for each of our students.

Students are provided numerous options so that they can choose those educational tools that best suit their learning styles.

These options include:

  • Online Homework
  • Detailed course notebooks
  • Multiple test styles

Polya transforms the often destructive social dynamic of "one size fits all" classroom lectures into an adaptive structure that caters to individual student needs. Each week, students attend one class meeting to discuss learning strategies, describe new topics, and share study hints.
