Programs & Services
Seminar XL/LE is a structured study group program based on Dr. Uri Treisman’s Challenge Calculus Workshops. They provide first-year students with a supportive venue for collective conceptual problem solving. Each semester, students in pursuit of the best possible grades join Seminar XL/Seminar XL LE groups where they work with a facilitator to deepen their understanding of the first-year core curriculum. In addition, they learn to problem solve more efficiently through teamwork and acquired analytical skills that are useful in almost any academic or professional realm. By working closely together as a group, Seminar XL/Seminar XL LE students develop key skills that benefit their years at MIT as well as their graduate studies and professional lives.
