Free Math Help for Freshmen This Summer

Let’s face it: math isn’t a good subject for a lot of students. That said you don’t have to struggle. The Learning Commons, located in the Thigpen Library, is open to all incoming freshmen looking for free help with their math courses before the semester begins.

The Learning Commons is an area that hosts different classes, but it also has instructional assistants that can help you improve your math skills before the semester even begins. “College readiness is an area that we shine in,” says Kay Dayton, director of the Learning Commons. If you don’t know what to brush up on, they offer a pre-assessment test that can pinpoint your weaknesses. “We give a student what that student needs. It’s a flexible program; it’s flexible to meet every student’s needs,” says Daniel Walker, one of the Learning Commons’ instructional assistants. Want to know more? You can contact the Learning Commons at 615-230-3676
