Many colleges require their incoming freshmen to take a math placement test that will determine which courses they will be able to enroll in.
Based on their performance, students can enroll in Calculus, Pre-calculus, Algebra, or other remedial courses. Poor performance can result in the student having to take additional math courses to be able to finish the required math courses for their degree. Unfortunately, placement tests typically cover a wide range of material, some of which students learned three years ago. We work with students to determine what content they are held responsible for by their college and to learn that material in the short period they have to prepare.
