A one-month (May 2016) study abroad experience in Arusha, Tanzania has been designed specifically for mathematics education students. Students teach mathematics in local schools, volunteer in an orphanage, learn Swahili, and go on a four-day safari! In addition, a day climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro (9,000 ft.), and hiking in the Arusha National Park is included in the program. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for GVSU students to learn about and live in a different culture and experience the beauty and richness of Tanzania. Students may earn credit for MTH 496 (Capstone) and/or MTH 386 (Issues).

You can follow the experiences of the 2015 Tanzania group on their blog.  Older blogs are also available to read:  2014, 2013, 2012, as well a Tumblr page of photos from 2012.
