Summer Math Camp

"Give us 2 weeks of your time and effort and you may save 16 weeks of coursework and over $250 of tuition! "

June 20 – 30, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, Q152

The summer math camp is designed for all new students to PVCC who have taken the math placement test (Accuplacer) only once and placed into either MAT 082 or MAT 092. The camp was developed in response to the large numbers of incoming students that test into developmental math (pre-college) courses rather than college-level, degree-required courses. The 24 hours of content review will be followed by students retesting on the placement test and hopefully placing into a higher-level math class.

 

Location: PVCC Union Hills, Q building, Q152                                Registration fee:  FREE
