Math Workshops

Students preparing for the math portion of the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) can take advantage of THEA workshops offered by the Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) Center for the Advancement of Scholastic Achievement (CASA).

The workshops are free and open to all TAMIU and eligible high school students. Space is limited.

The schedule is as follows:
