Statler College to Offer Adult Pre-calculus Boot Camp
Adult students who need to improve their math skills and become calculus-ready will now have the chance to enroll in a pre-calculus boot camp in the Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources. The College will offer Engineering 293E this summer, July 2-August 10, from 9 a.m.-10:15 a.m., Monday through Friday.
"This course was designed with veterans in mind, however registration is open to non-veterans and non-engineering majors who need to improve their understanding of algebra and trigonometry in preparation for upper-level calculus courses," said Todd Hamrick, assistant teaching professor in Freshman Engineering.
According to Hamrick, the course will cover a number of topics including review of the real number system and algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities, graphing, functions, basic matrix operations and properties, systems of equations, polynomials, counting, probability, trigonometric functions, identities, vectors, logarithms, complex numbers, trigonometric equations, and basic engineering problem-solving techniques that will facilitate understanding and application of these mathematical concepts to practical problems.
Registration is currently open. The course registration number is 53674. For more information, contact Hamrick at 304-293-7104.
