Content experts and academic mentors will guide participants through the online ALEKS PPL precalculus modules over three weeks. In addition to the development of the conceptual understanding necessary for calculus, participants will also enhance their mathematical reasoning skills, problem-solving skills, and effective study habits.

Each group will be assigned an academic mentor who will help maximize the learning experience.
