Math Boot Camp for August & November will be held remotely
Log into Canvas for the online Math Boot Camp
Log into a Webex meeting so that the staff/tutors are able to assist the students and verify their attendance and participation
Meet with tutors online to answer questions through Webex; breakout rooms available for individual assistance
Complete a minimum of 36 hours of online attendance (total hours available are reduced to 40 for online boot camps)

All extra materials will be delivered via announcements, email or sharing via Webex
Required technology: computer or tablet, webcam, microphone and internet access
Participation by cell phone is prohibited
The boot camp serves all undergraduate students who would like to:
Place into a higher level mathematics course by achieving a better score on the ALEKS Placement exam.
Improve their success in their next mathematics course or mathematics course currently underway.
Review and improve their ability in mathematics after a long absence (one year or more)
To qualify for certain permits or register for a third attempt you must fulfill 36 hours in our Math Emporium lab on the Boca Raton Campus. Students are also required to reach a minimum score on the ALEKS Placement exam given at the end of each Boot Camp. If you are required to take the MBC to fulfill a mathematics course, you are strongly encouraged to sign up for that course directly following the boot camp. Success rates are proven to be much better when doing so.
The cost for each boot camp is $200. Additional fees will include $33 for the ALEKS Placement and Learning Modules which will be used during the MBC. If you are required to repeat the MBC Program, there is a discounted fee of $150 if you do it within one year of the last full fee course attended. You can also repeat the course to elevate your tests scores and use the repeat discount. If you are a returning student and would like to receive the discount code, simply call our office for instructions, 561.297.1036 or email Wendy Kasten at email@example.com or Lisa Greenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces) is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly assess the students' knowledge. ALEKS then instructs the students on topics they are most ready to learn.” (https://www.aleks.com/about_aleks)
Students start the MBC by taking an ALEKS assessment to determine the areas to focus on. Students then continue into the remediation modules with the assistance of MBC Assistants and Professor Lisa Greenberg. Students retake the ALEKS assessment at the end of the camp to determine their course placement.
