About connection between high school and university
The proposal of Akita university was selected as one of the Education-GP programs by MEXT in 2010. We succeed this project in the following activities:
- High-school/University connection textbook
In collaboration of professors in Akita university and high-school teachers in Akita prefecture, we make textbooks for smooth connection between the educations at high schools and universities.Mathematical Science Course joins the construction of textbooks in mathematics.
- Question hours
We offer the hour every week for students to ask professors or TA questions on the class “basic mathematics”. Here, students may ask topics they could not understand during the class or may use it as a free study hour.During the semester, the question hour is held at 16:00-17:30 once a week.
- Lectures at high schools
In collaboration with high school teachers, we arrange the opportunities that professors in our course visit high schools and give lectures so that the students notice the fun of mathematics through handiworks.
