The Scholarships Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) project at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is seeking applicants for our unique scholarship program. In addition to providing monetary scholarship support, S-COAM creates a network
of students that engage in professional development activities to improve your career prospects and success in STEM fields.
While increasing numbers of students pursuing mathematics degrees, S-COAM is unique in its goal of establishing a supportive connection of graduate students with undergraduates through scholarship cohort activities.
Need-based scholarships annually support seven to nine students from the MS in Applied Mathematics and about 40 undergraduates seeking a mathematics major or minor in mathematics with a STEM major. Annually, 10 to 20 new freshmen are recruited with at
least 87 distinct students supported over five years. We are seeking high-achieving high school students with financial need from across the region.
The selection process considers need, diversity, academic performance, activities, and a personal statement.
Apply according to your student group:
In addition to financial support, S-COAM scholars will also participate in the Mathematics Enrichment Activities Network.

Calculus II (MATH 126)
Abstract: In this workshop a basic introduction to using 3D printers will be undertaken. Demonstrations of both 3D model creation and printing will be shown using standard software tools. Workshop participants will have the opportunity
to create 3D models that could be printed using standard 3D printers.
Abstract: In this workshop a hands on approach to creating models for 3D printing will be undertaken. Participants will use notebooks to create 3D geometries that can be converted to file types that are acceptable for 3D printing. The
focus of this workshop will be more on the mathematics needed for 3D printing, rather than the creation of complicated 3D printable models.
Abstract: This hands-on session will familiarize participants with the basic capabilities of Mathematica, inclusing experience with Mathematica'a notebook interface and syntax. Topics will include algebra, calculus, 2D, #D, and parametric
Abstract: Participants will use Mathematica and basic concepts from algebra, calculus, and linear algebra to enhance and analyze photographs. We will use simple algebraic functions to restore old faded photographs and poorly light photographs.
We will use histograms to separate the foreground and background of an image. We will use derivatives and matrix operations to blur images and to detect edges of objects within images. Prerequisites: Understanding of basic matrix operations and
derivatives, and some familiarity with Mathematica. Knowledge of partial derivatives would be useful, but not necessary.
