This course is designed for students who will be starting or restarting college within a year. Incoming college students are placed in math courses based on placement exams. Students with lower scores are required to take more math courses. Preparation for placement exams can mean higher scores and fewer required math courses in college. This course contains math study materials to help students prepare for placement exams. Students who have already taken a placement exam (e.g. ACT) can also use these materials to study and then retest, hopefully scoring higher. The provided study materials are individualized based on a student’s current knowledge. Each student will be provided a customized learning path that maximizes efficiency so that study time is spent where it’s needed most.
