MATH JAM BOOTCAMP COURSES BEFORE THE SEMESTER STARTS
tuition–free and materials provided!
WHY DO A MATH JAM?
Your last week of freedom before the semester starts is time well spent!! You will get individualized, 15 hours of math support on what you need to know prior to your first day of school, getting you ready for the 1st day! During Math Jam you will review prerequisite material or get a head start on the materials covered in your math class, depending on your individual background and needs.
“I reviewed more in one week than I feel like I have in any other class…. I learned much more than I thought possible, and all in all, this was a great way to spend my time before the semester started.”
~ LPC student
Math Jam this August 2022 will be in-person!
Monday - Friday 9am - 3pm week before Fall and Spring Semesters
FREE FOOD & MATERIALS!
CONCURRENT SUPPORT COURSES DURING THE SEMESTER
NEW! Jam all semester long with
RECOMMENDED support during the semester.
WHY DO CONCURRENT SUPPORT?
You will get help from instructors and classmates on the most challenging parts of your math class, including homework problems and preparing for tests. You will also learn math concepts and strategies in a course designed to streamline and improve your performance in your current math course. There is no homework for this class.
“I LOVE THIS CLASS!!! They answer all my questions when I have them. Each professor is so helpful and informative. They always give you the best advice on how to do the problems. And I’m getting a B in my class because of it! Which is the highest math grade I’ve ever received.”
~ LPC student
Concurrent Support is offered HyFlex - choose each class to come in-person and/or virtual!
What does the RESEARCH say?
LPC Math Jam students have ~10% higher success rate in their next math course compared students who did not attend Math Jam!
Concurrent Support WORKS. Statewide data shows that students are more likely to succeed with concurrent support.
