2011 summer boot camp mini Review sessions

The Title V STEM Learning Communities Program and Mathematics Department will offer a series of Summer Boot Camp Mini Review Sessions (College Algebra Readiness, College Algebra and Pre-calculus) to help students succeed in their mathematics courses.

These sessions are FREE to all UTB/TSC students, you are entitled to take these reviews if you fall into one of the following categories:

For College Algebra:

  • If you are going to take college algebra during the summer session II or fall semesters.
  • If you did not pass the College Algebra course/test and need a free review course before retaking it.
  • If you passed the third level of developmental math and would like to test out of College Algebra or improve your chances to be successful in the course.
  • If you need to bridge your high school math courses with college algebra or pre-calculus.
  • If you need to test out of college algebra and get into pre-calculus or statistics.

For Pre-Calculus:

  • If you are pursuing a degree program that mandates you to take Pre-Calculus and Calculus.
  • If you did not pass the Pre-Calculus course/test and need a free review course before retaking it.
  • If you need to bridge your high school math courses with Pre-Calculus and Calculus.
  • If you need to test out of Pre-Calculus and get into Calculus or other higher level Calculus-required courses.

For College Algebra Readiness:  

  • If you are going to take college algebra during fall semester.
  • If you did not pass the COMPASS test and have to take developmental math courses in the Fall semester. This course gives you a second chance, if you finish the two week course work and pass the post-test, you can register for college algebra without taking developmental math.
  • If you need to bridge your high school math courses with developmental math in college or college algebra.
  • If you need to review developmental math and gain a better ground before you get into college algebra or pre-cal.
