Register Today for the Algebra/Trig/Calculus Boot Camp
Algebra/Trig/Calculus Boot Camp is a helpful and stress-free workshop to help students learn, and practice the mathematical concepts in Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus. The curriculum will introduce new methods to help revive your mathematical skills by introducing different strategies to master problems using algebra up to calculus concepts.
The boot camp is a fun and exciting camp for students to work together and sharpen their skills in order to be successful in the Calculus (STEM or Business) sequence. If selected to participate, you will take part in a week long experience that will help you to become a better learner and give you the foundation to be ready for future mathematics courses.
Boot Camp Schedule: Dates, Times, & Location
Boot Camp will run March 20 & 21, 2020.
Sessions will start at 8:00 am and end at 5:00 pm (9 hours per day for 2 days) with a break in the middle. All of the meetings will be held on the Haverhill Campus in the Spurk (C) Building in C113.

About the Boot Camp Workshop
This one-week boot camp will focus on problem solving, explorations, and applications of mathematics. It will incorporate calculator skills where students can:
- Check their algebra skills
- Get up to speed on their graphing calculator skills
- Learn how to solve real life problems – not memorize
- Be familiar with notation
- Actually learn the formulas
Students will collaboratively master these topics in an environment of rigorous mathematical immersion.
- Face-to-face meetings.
- Students will solve problems in class and have faculty right there to help.
- Snacks will be provided.
