UND Math offers free, self-guided review materials for our online students taking Precalculus through Calculus II.
We understand that some of our online calculus students are returning to school after a significant break and believe that such students may benefit from reviewing pre-requisite course material before they start the class.
The review material is available for 4-6 weeks; it will close at the end of the first week of classes.
The review materials are offered through an online learning system called Knewton Alta and are available free of charge for anyone enrolled in our online calculus courses. Knewton Alta is adaptive learning courseware which includes instructional materials and videos. If you are struggling with a concept, Alta's adaptive software can identify knowledge gaps and help you learn the material needed to address those gaps.
The review material is accessible through a Blackboard course, "Foundations for Calculus". Students will need to enroll in the course to access the review material. Currently, it is set up to review materials for Precalculus, Calculus I, and Calculus II, however, students taking Intermediate Algebra or Calculus III and above, may also benefit from the review.
Each review course is set up with a diagnostic “readiness test” which will help the student identify topics they may need to review. Grades in the test or assignments are not recorded and no credits will be earned by taking this course. To get most out of this course, students should complete the tests and assignments independently and honestly.
We encourage our online students to use the available resources and refresh their pre-requisite math skills before the semester begins. This will set them up for success in their upcoming Calculus class.
