MATH JAM BOOTCAMP COURSES
Award-winning, 1-week before the semester starts, & tuition-free!
Offered the week before the Fall and Spring semesters. Innovative learning interventions help you prepare for upcoming mathematic courses. Proven to increase student success and retention rates!
The Math Jam (prior to enrollment) is designed specifically to provide a supportive, noncredit pathway for all students into a credit math course required to transfer. Embedded are essential study and life skills to develop each student holistically, prior to enrolling in a math course as well as rigorous learning support of prerequisite and key math concepts. Prior to starting math courses, Math Jam assists students in preparing for a target first-transfer level mathematics course, required to transfer.
During Math Jam you will work in a self-paced environment on the math YOU need support on. You will work with faculty and tutors in a fun and supportive environment. We will provide everything you need - including FOOD and supplies - just come ready to learn... Remember, it’s TUITION-FREE*.
What students say about Math Jam:
"I reviewed more in one week than I feel like I have in any other class…. I learned much more than I thought possible, and all in all, this was a great way to spend my time before the semester started.”
“(Math Jam was) so help full. from my pre to my post test I jumped from 36% to 88%. Although what i like most is that it is the week before school starts. I am ready for school. After math jam I am excited for all my classes, not just math. I grow up with a poor education, was always behind in school, failing, not showing up. Never thought I would be here studying a week before school and excited for it.”
IT’S YOUR TURN!
