Math Readiness Camp
August 7-10, 2019
Deadline to Apply: August 1, 2019
For students who want to place into a specific math course such as CALC I, or a higher math course than the one they tested into during orientation. During the 4-day residential camp, students are assembled into small working groups based on skill level to obtain deeper understanding of mathematical concepts in algebra, trigonometry or calculus. The goal is to improve math placement scores and prepare for Mason math courses. Math professors, graduate students and undergraduate learning assistants will provide guidance and support to each camp attendee. On the first day (if needed) and last day of camp, students will have the opportunity to take the math placement test. Participation in the camp adds one additional opportunity to the Mason two-attempt limit (max 3, total).
The camp is residential and students are expected to stay in the dorms during the week. Students that participate in STEM camps, are also strongly encouraged to enroll in the associated University Transitions (UNIV 108; 0-1 credit) course for the fall semester. In this course you will continue to work with the same student cohort, and build the skills necessary to effectively transition to university life.
Space is limited, so apply early! Students can take both camps (STEM Boot Camp and Math Readiness) and we have accommodations at Mason for the transition day. Note that there is a single application for both camps.
Math Readiness Camp: $425
STEM Boot Camp: $600
For students attending both camps and staying the night at Mason between camps (on 08/10/19): $75
