Free short math course offered to UTC freshmen
Before fall 2007 classes begin, new freshmen have a chance to hone their math skills with a five day class designed to boost students from intermediate algebra to college algebra. New UTC freshmen who have an ACT score of 19-21 or those who have taken the UTC math placement exam and have placed in Math 106, Intermediate Algebra, prior to fall semester may take this short math course.
The course will be a combination of lecture, lab work and tutoring.
“I would encourage new freshman students who want to sharpen their math skills to take this course. At the conclusion of the course, these students will be tested to determine if they will be eligible to take college algebra,” said Yancy Freeman, Director of Admissions.
UTC mathematics faculty will teach this free course, to be offered 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, August 10-11, and Monday through Wednesday, August 13-15. Enrollment will be limited to 100 students.
Eligible students may visit Step Ahead Math online to enroll.
Students may move into campus housing Thursday, August 9, between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. UTC classes begin Monday, August 20.
