We will be transitioning to an in person Math Boot Camp for Spring 2022 (January 2022 Boot Camp), while still offering limited online availability.
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 mathematics class (MAC1105 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 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 Lisa Greenberg/Mathematics Instructor. Students retake the ALEKS assessment at the end of the camp to determine their course placement.
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 (having taken the camp once before), 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 discount code. If you are a returning student and would like to use the discount code, simply call our office for instructions, 561.297.1036 or email email@example.com.
Please notify us by phone or email at least 48 hours before the course begins if you must cancel a course. You will receive a full refund for the canceled boot camp. If less than 48 hours notice is given, you will be charged a $15 processing fee for the cancellation. No cancellations will be accepted AFTER a course begins. If a course is cancelled by us for any reason, you will receive a full refund.
Non-degree-seeking students and non-FAU students may enroll in a boot camp on a space availability basis.
