UVU Math Refresher MOOC:

Utah Valley University is offering a FREE Math Refresher MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) from June 2nd to July 28th, 2014. The course is designed for current students, or students who will be starting or restarting college within the next year. It provides math refresher materials covering a wide range of mathematical concepts together with information about success in college.

The study materials in the course are individualized, based on a student's current knowledge. Each student will be provided a customized learning path, so study time is spent where it's needed most. The course will also provide college success material, such as test-taking strategies, new student orientation, and study techniques. (This material can be accessed separately from the math content.) This is a free, non-credit class, and it is hosted on the Canvas Network.  For additional information and registration information, please go to:    http://www.uvu.edu/uc/freemathprep/
