Great use of skills and review that helps you in courses you take

Seniors who decide to grade for us wish they would have graded sooner

Mathematics graders and advanced help session workers usually have scores at these levels or above: 33/33 ACT, 780/650 SAT or 110 on the AMC 12. All positions are for undergraduates only and enrollment in 6 hours is required to work for us. Also required are good references either academic or work related. Math grading and help positions usually require A work in the course you are grading or helping with. The Department will pre-screen applications for the best workers who meet our written qualifications for the positions and will contact references.

These positions do not require a major in mathematics, but do require a high proficiency in the level of mathematics used and good work ethics. K-State students are considered based on: their academic performance in all math courses taken at K-State; their overall academics; K-State faculty recommendations; and their scores in the Putnam and S.T. Parker Mathematical Competitions. Applicants will be screened using their academic records (including transcripts), application materials, and information obtained from their references. Applicants who do not have three work references may include educational references instead. Only those applicants who best meet our criteria will be interviewed or offered a position. Application forms are available in the bin outside 138 Cardwell Hall. High school students who are considering a grading position in mathematics should send their high school transcript and their AMC scores directly to the Mathematics Department at Kansas State University with a note that they are interested in a grading position in mathematics at K-State and would like to receive an application for employment.
