Question about math internships

    Question about "math internships"...

    Some time in the near future I'm expected to register for a course titled "Math Internship". The course description says "Internships in math related disciplines" -- not exactly helpful..

    My question is does this mean student teaching? Tutoring for the school? Internships in industry? Anyone have any experience?

    When you asked your university/department what did they tell you?

    I've yet to ask anyone at the university yet.. Figured I'd give it a shot here first.

    I'd guess it's more of a "real-world" job position than a school one, since an internship usually indicates some sort of training on the workplace that I doubt you could receive while working as a tutor at the school. But as Vanadium said, I think it would be a good idea to ask them as soon as you can.
