Foundations of Mathematical Success 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Description 
This course begins two weeks before Fall semester begins. During the first two weeks of the course, students meet twice a day for an hour each. In the first hour, the students will work together on math projects to help them develop a connection between social interaction and problem solving. In the second hour, students will practice foundational skills that will prepare them for the Math course they will take in the following fall semester. During the fall semester, this class will meet once per week as an opportunity to discuss successes and challenges and to receive help that they need in the Math course they are taking.
