In addition, the learning assistant program, which has proven vital for Mastery Math, was pioneered by the faculty in the STEM Transformation Institute. It was first implemented in Physics as a teacher preparation program during a time when enrollment numbers were steadily dropping for majors. Today, the peer-mentoring program is being implemented at a much greater scale. Along with physics and math, FIU has deployed learning assistants in chemistry, earth sciences and biological sciences.
