# Math/SDS Majors Colloquium

MATH/DATA 195M is a one-unit colloquium course for new freshman and transfer majors in Mathematics or Statistics & Data Science.

The goals of the course are

- to introduce new majors to the mathematical and statistical communities at the UA;
- to support new majors as they adjust to university life and expectations; and
- to improve students' written and oral communication skills, especially on technical topics.

To achieve these goals, students will complete a number of activities, including journaling; writing and formatting a resume, research paper, and presentation in LaTeX; and accessing university resources.
