Free Math Improvement Course
As adult learners, we often return to school after years away (sometimes many!) from a formal classroom. Improving or refreshing your confidence and competence with college-level math can be just the thing you need to get you started toward success as a student. Penn State Continuing Education partners with the CIU 10 Development Center for Adults to offer a free, two-semester Math Improvement Course; Part I during the fall semester, Part II in the spring. This is a noncredit course which ideally can provide you with a foundation in Algebra and can prepare you for success in Math 21, College Algebra I, which meets a quantification requirement for many of the non-science majors. Students looking for a slower-paced math-improvement course should consider this option. It could be an appropriate alternative to Math 004.
Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:00–8:30 p.m.
Room 121H, Outreach Building
100 Innovation Blvd, State College
To register: Contact the Development Center for Adults at 814-359-3069 or the Continuing Education Office at 814-865-3443.
