Louie is putting the site together...

Math Xcelerator is a four-week summer bridge program designed to help students learn math study strategies and review the math skills/concepts needed to be successful during their first year at UofL. Program participants will explore algebra content at their own pace with the assistance of interactive courseware, a student study guide, a facilitator, and knowledgeable math tutors. Lessons will be taught using guided instruction and mastery learning with minimal lecturing. Successful completion of the program will reduce the amount of intervention coursework required in mathematics.

Is this program for you?

Many first-time UofL students are required to take the ACCUPLACER placement test to determine their math course placement for the fall semester. The ACCUPLACER should be taken before summer orientation.

Information regarding this test is provided in your New Cards Gateway and on our New Cards website.
