Speed Calculus Preview Program - Summer 2015
The Calculus Preview Program is a four-week, intensive review program for intermediate algebra and advanced algebra skills. The program requires on site or online instructor-led review sessions. These review sessions offer fast-paced instruction in a self-paced format. In addition, online computer sessions provide practice, supplemental instruction, and skills tests for each week of the program. Students must work to task completing weekly assignments and tests for successful completion of the program. If a student successfully completes the program, he or she will be better prepared to handle the rigorous first few weeks of her/his first SPEED engineering course. Find out more about the program.
ENGR190 Summer Option 2015
The Department of Engineering Fundamentals has partnered with REACH to create a summer program for incoming Engineering freshmen called ENGR-190 Summer Option. ENGR-190 Summer Option is a four-week, intensive review program designed to give students a solid background in algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and an introduction to differential calculus. The program offers fast-paced instruction in a self-paced format that requires on-site or online daily/weekly participation. An online computer software program provides an electronic textbook, practice problems, learning aids, and exams. Students must work to task completing weekly assignments and exams for successful completion of the program. All students who successfully complete the program will advance from Introductory Calculus (ENGR 190) into Engineering Analysis I (ENGR 101). Testing into ENGR 101 will allow a student to stay on track with the normal SPEED School plan of study.
