Undergraduate Research Week: April 23 – 29

The university library plays a critical role in undergraduate (or any level) of research. Here at Macdonald-Kelce we celebrate UT’s emphasis on the importance of undergraduate research. This means we are able to offer you higher quality collections with a more in depth focus on research methods. Many of our librarians have subject specific expertise – don’t hesitate to ask us for help.

A week long schedule of events honoring the achievements (your achievements!) made in undergraduate research is coming up in April. Symposia include many of the colleges at UT: College of Natural and Health Sciences (CNHS), Sykes College of Business, College of Social Sciences, Mathematics, and Education (CSSME), the Honors Program, and a Human Rights Conference. Read more about it in the March Insighter.

From their about page

“The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We’re a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere.

“All of the site’s resources are available to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology.

I referred a student to their huge selection of Algebra videos today, but there’s a lot more there than just math. However, if you need a free online source to help you brush up on your math or statistics skills you might want to check it out.
