Other Information about the Course

The Fast Track mathematics program is designed for those students who feel the placement test results do not reflect their true mathematical ability and knowledge,and for those students who would like to refresh and strengthen their mathematical skills. Participation in this program could potentially allow you to complete your course of studies in mathematics in less time. If you are one of these students you are invited to take part in this program this semester.

You will have from 11/05 - 12/14 to complete as much of the program as you can. Your placement will depend on a final assessment given in the program Aleks. You will be able to take this on your own computer, however, if you do not pass, you will be given the option of retaking the placement test at Bucks' Testing Center. You will also be asked to sign a contract stating that you read and understand the requirements of the course.

Initial placement (or starting point) will be determined by your Bucks placement score.

Remember, you must check your Bucks e-mail account for an e-mail from me close to the start date of the class. Also, if you have any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at...
