Courses & Modalities
The Department of Mathematics is excited to offer a number of courses for the Summer 2023 term! We will be offering courses in online (with synchronous instructional times)* and in-person modalities over the 8-week DHH session**. While the full schedule of our summer math courses can be found using the Course Search & Enroll App, the list of courses and modalities for Summer 2023 is listed below:
|MATH 141 (SCE Only)**||In-Person|
|MATH/COMP SCI 240||Online|
|MATH/COMP SCI/ECE 435||Online|
|MATH/COMP SCI/STAT 475||Online|
* Online math courses have synchronous instruction. Similar to an in-person course, these are times in which students would have to be available online to meet with their classmates/instructor/TA. Students are expected to participate in the course given the scheduled times provided. Students should not be signing up for overlapping courses.
** MATH 141 will occur over the EFF session and is reserved for students in SCE.
Tutoring availability for Summer 2023 will be posted in the coming weeks.
Please see the linked PDF message from the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning, and the Vice Provost for Information Technology, regarding UW-Madison Student Technology Needs.
Although already mentioned in the previous document, the Math Department would like for students to have working webcams for online courses, in the case that instructors would like to use the cameras to proctor exams. If you have any questions about the webcam and exams, please contact the course instructor.

Summer Course Workloads & Pacing
Please keep in mind that summer math courses cover the same content as regular 16-week courses in the fall and spring, albeit in a more condensed, 8-week format. Since summer courses are relatively fast-paced, consider your summer credit and course loads (i.e., the number of credits and courses you’re planning to take), course rigor, and other summer commitments when thinking about your summer courses. In particular, if you are taking more than one course, please remember to keep the workload expectations of the courses in mind (though it is good to keep in mind for any course load). You will need to exercise good time management skills in order to take summer courses, and to take math courses in particular.
Prepping for an Online Summer Course
If you’re considering one of our online offerings, the UW-Madison Summer Term website has a page on prepping for summer success in online courses.
Online Math Course Meeting Times
These courses are online but have synchronous instruction. Similar to an in-person course, these are times in which students would have to be available online to meet with their classmates/instructor/TA. Students are expected to participate in the course given the scheduled times provided. Students should not be signing up for overlapping courses.
Tutoring for the Summer 2023 term will be offered for most courses. The schedule can be found on the MLC’s summer tutoring page.
UW-Madison has a number of financial aid opportunities for students considering summer coursework.
