Pre-University Math Courses

Many students come to university without the prerequisite math courses or knowledge that they need in order to be admitted into the mathematics and statistics courses necessary for their program.

It is for this reason that we offer an online introductory level algebra AND a pre-calculus Math course.

Pre-University Mathematics courses are intended for students who:

  • Are about to start university or college and are concerned about their foundation in math;
  • Have been out of high school for several years and would like a refresher before taking university or college math and other courses that require high-school-level math;
  • Are already at university or college and need a refresher before taking courses requiring high-school-level math.
