The MATH BRIDGE PROGRAM's Pre-Semester Prep
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Math Bridge Program are pleased to offer the Pre-Semester Prep again for Summer and Fall 2014. This program is designed to help students achieve success in their introductory math courses.
Participating students will receive:

Students must participate in all three parts:
Part I: Orientation Meeting
The Orientation Meeting is an introduction to the Pre-Semester Prep (PSP). We will begin with a brief (15 minute) description of the ALEKS assessment, The Math Bridge Program and the PSP. Then, participants will jump right into that assessment, usually taking between an hour to an hour and a half to complete. Upon completion, students will meet one-on-one with a Math Bridge adviser to go over the scores and develop a strategy for strengthening prerequisite skills over their break, before the beginning of their next semester.
