Mini Math Jam Starts Jan. 7

There is still time to register for next week's Mini Math Jam, but you better hurry.

Next week's Mini Math Jam is a one-week, intensive preparation for the math placement test for students intending to major in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) fields. It is designed especially for students who placed into a college math course below pre-calculus and who want to advance to the next math level by scoring higher on the math placement test at the end of Mini Math Jam.

The program's goal is to help students complete their Associates Degree and/or transfer requirements for a four-year college in less time than previously possible.

The Mini Math Jam will be held Monday through Friday, Jan. 7-11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Both sessions will be held on the second floor of Building 9 in the Learning Center.

"We currently have 96 students registered for daytime and 66 for evening," said Chris Burwell-Woo, a retention specialist at the college. "We still have a little room for student in the Math 811, 110 and 120 groups so we will accept students who want to sign up on Monday if they arrive promptly at the start of the session."

Burwell-Woo emphasized that spots are limited and that additional students will not be accepted after the first day. Burwell-Woo also encouraged students signed up for the Fast Track to Calculus or Path to Statistics courses this spring to participate as it will provide a solid foundation for the courses.

"We will be able to answer any questions they might have about the classes while they are at Mini Math Jam," Burwell-Woo said.
