Math Bridge Program
I remember taking my first (and only) math class at college. I remember thinking it had only been two and half years since my last math class in high school. I figured I was headed into an introductory math course, which would introduce me to difficult math concepts, not actually test me on them. I was in for a challenging semester, which I survived thanks only to an extreme bell curve.
Are you signed up for Math 107, 161, 200, or 262 this summer?
Let me introduce you to the Math Bridge Program.
The Math Bridge Program is offered by the University of Alaska Fairbanks Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It is a five day long (only fifteen hours total!) program that will prepare you to succeed in your summer math courses.
Fifteen hours and you will receive intensive, individual review of prerequisite material, a preview of how your course will be organized, test skills, strategies for finishing your homework, and how to gain the most benefit from lectures.
Successfully complete these fifteen hours and what do you get?
Not only all the skills to excel in your summer math class, but a FREE one-credit tuition waiver!
Best of all, the Math Bridge Program is completely free. There are only two requirements:
1)Register for MATH 107, MATH 161, MATH 200 or MATH 262 at UAF for Summer 2012.
2) Complete the Math Bridge Program Application Form.
Visit this website for more information, and to access the application. You will also find a detailed schedule and points of contact for the program. Sign up soon! Registration is on a first-come, first- served basis, and closes May 18th. Class is from 9am- Noon, May 21- 25.
Math does not have to be intimidating, or go hand-in-hand with a bell curve (unless you are learning the Gaussian function). A little work now can really pay off this semester- take advantage of it!
