Course Information

The syllabus for the La Follette Math Prep course is here.

The first four sections of the math review course are now available. The next sections will be available next week. A third set of sections will be added in July.

*For students whose admission was conditional upon completion of the online math preparation course, we expect you to complete all 13 modules before you arrive at La Follette and recommend doing so sequentially. We will be monitoring successful completion of the course for students who were offered conditional acceptance. All other students are strongly encouraged to utilize the course or parts of the course to review the concepts to facilitate a successful first semester at La Follette.

Since this is a new course, we welcome your feedback and questions. We will send a survey at the end of the summer. Instructor contact and technical support information is included on the syllabus. You can also contact Mary Treleven and we will get you the information you need.
