Math Bridge Program: Spring 2014
Students must participate in all three parts:
Part I: Orientation Meeting
The Orientation Meeting is an introduction to the Math Bridge Program. We will begin with a brief (15 minute) description of the ALEKS assessment and the Math Bridge Program. 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 advisor to go over the scores and develop a strategy for strengthening prerequisite skills over Winter Break, before the beginning of the Spring Semester.
Late Start Option
We are including a LATE START Bridge option this semester. This option is for students who apply to the program after the December Orientation dates but would still like to benefit from the Math Bridge Program. This option is not to be entered into lightly. As the late start session begins a full month after the regular sessions, students are given just 10 days to complete 20-60 hours of online math work! As a result, students who wish to participate are STRONGLY encouraged to complete at least 2 hours of this online work in the campus Math Lab, every day. This Math Lab time allows students to ask for help and guarantees that they'll make steady progress through the Aleks. If you plan to wait until final grades are posted to register for your next math course, please consider signing up for the Math Bridge early, in case you will have to retake your course, giving yourself ample time to complete it. If, however, a late application cannot be avoided, we are here for you.
In order to earn the 1-credit tuition waiver, a student must:
- Register for Math 107, Math 161, Math 200, or Math 262 at UAF for Spring 2014
- Complete the Math Bridge Program, including: attending an Orientation Meeting, completing at least 80% of the Online Prerequisite Work, and attending a Ramp-up Meeting
- Pass his/her math course
