What is the EXCEL Math Boot Camp?

Math Boot Camp is for EXCEL students who placed into College Algebra (MAC 1105), Pre-Calc Algebra, Trigonometry or Math for Calculus (MAC 1140, 1114 or 2147) and are interested in possibly improving their math placement for Fall semester.

EXCEL Math Boot Camp provides a week of intensive instruction using adaptive learning methodologies to help students learn algebra and trigonometry concepts. Combining live instruction with computerized modules allows students to tailor learning and move at their own pace.

Participants will test on day one to determine placement in the correct math module. Under the guidance of our instructors and teaching assistants, students will move at their own pace through the content. At the end of the week, students will test a second time – hopefully improving by one or more levels and advancing to a higher math placement for fall semester. Higher math placement cannot be guaranteed.

Why would I want to participate?

  1. Financial Savings: The cost of 1 credit hour in state at UCF is $212.28. Math courses range from 3-5 credit hours. For each math class you are able to master during Boot Camp you are saving yourself $637 – $1061.
  2. Graduate Sooner: Many STEM majors require you master your calculus course before you can advance in your major. Students starting in College Algebra, Pre-Calc Algebra or Trigonometry have 1 or 2 classes before you even get to calculus. Starting higher in math could save you 1 to 2 semesters towards advancing in your major and even graduation.
  3. Deeper Learning: Even if you do not advance a math level during Boot Camp, the learning you receive during the week will serve as a good refresher of your math basics and strengthen your subject knowledge for the fall. This increased knowledge should provide a stronger foundation and make the course easier for you, decreasing the chances of failure and the need to repeat the course.
