The boot camp is open to all degree-seeking undergraduate students who wish to:
Place into a higher level mathematics course by achieving a better score on the ALEKS Placement, Preparation and Learning (ALEKS PPL) Assessment.
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)
The Math Boot camp is a short and intensive noncredit web-based math workshop to help students improve their math skills and place into a more advanced math class (MAC 1105 or higher).
The boot camp provides group instruction together with ALEKS remediation modules to assist students.
"ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn." (https://www.aleks.com/about_aleks)
Students start the boot camp by taking an ALEKS assessment to determine the areas to focus on. Students then continue into the remediation modules with the assistance of Math Boot Camp Assistants and Professor Lisa Greenberg. Students retake the ALEKS assessment at the end of the camp to determine their course placement.

To qualify for certain permits, students will also be required to reach a required minimum score on the placement exam given at the end of the Boot Camp. Additional fees will include $33 ALEKS placement and Learning Modules that will be used during the Boot Camp.
Please notify us by phone or email at least 48 hours before the program begins if you must cancel a course. No cancellations will be accepted AFTER a math boot camp begins. If a program is canceled by us for any reason, you will receive a full refund.
You can repeat the MBC program to further elevate your test scores for a discounted fee of $150 within one year of the last full fee course attended. If you are a returning student and would like to repeat a course, simply call our office - 561.297.1036 for instructions.
