Math Refresher Course

About EngT 295R


The Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology found that although many students returning from Church missions had excellent study habits, their recall of pre-mission course work was rusty. Thus, many students struggled for the first couple of weeks as they tried to remember the fundamental concepts of algebra and calculus.

To assist students in a smooth transition back into their math studies, we began offering the week-long Math Refresher Course in 1999. It was so successful that we offered it again during the fall and winter semesters in a format that was spread across each of the semester blocks.

It has since grown every year. We continue to receive feedback that this course has been extremely helpful in refreshing the concepts that students previously learned. It gives students a running start as they return to their studies at BYU. Although this course is offered under the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology, it is open to all majors at BYU.
