Summer Mathematics Workshops

 

Summer 2020 Math Refresher Workshops
 

STUDENTS MUST REGISTER FOR THE SUMMER 2020 MATH REFRESHER WORKSHOP BY MAY 4, 2020 at 9:00am.

 

NOTICE: All Summer 2020 Math Refresher Workshops have been moved to an online format via MS Teams.  If you are registered for a workshop, you will receive an email soon, if you have not already, explaining how to access the appropriate MS Teams.  Each instructor will organize a Teams meeting at the same time as the face-to-face workshop was scheduled, so please continue to plan on meeting at that time.  If you have any questions about this transition to an online format, please contact Melissa Braithwaite at Melissa.Braithwaite@uvu.edu.

 

The Math Refresher Workshops at Utah Valley University are primarily designed for students who have been away from mathematics for two or more years. However, registration is open to any student (including those attending other institutions) wishing to review algebra concepts before beginning further courses.

UVU students whose prerequisite math course was taken two or more years ago will encounter a prerequisite error when attempting to register for subsequent math courses. Math Refresher Workshop registration, together with a C or better in the prerequisite course(s), can be used as temporary placement in lieu of the ALEKS placement test.

Within two business days after workshop registration, an advisor will process a system override allowing UVU students to register for the desired UVU Summer 2020 math course. Students are responsible for their own UVU course registration; participation in the workshops does not guarantee a seat in the course.

The workshop can be used as placement instead of the ALEKS one time only; if you do not earn a C- or higher in your Summer 2020 MATH course, you will need to either repeat the prerequisite course or establish placement in the course with the ALEKS placement test.

Students using the workshops for placement must attend every session of their scheduled workshop, arriving on time and actively participating the entire session, in order to maintain placement. Students who do not attend or actively participate every session, who arrive late or leave early, or who are otherwise disruptive to the educational experience of other students will have their prerequisite override revoked and will be immediately Administratively Withdrawn from the Summer 2020 semester MATH course. Placement can be re-established through the ALEKS exam, and students may then try to re-register for the course; classes will not be reinstated.

The Math Refresher Workshops are course specific and can only be used as placement for the course and semester listed; they will NOT transfer to another semester. Students should register for the workshop corresponding to their desired Summer 2020 math enrollment.

REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP CORRESPONDING TO THE COURSE YOU WANT TO TAKE SUMMER 2020.

Examples: If you would like to take MATH 2010 Summer 2020 then register for the MATH 2010 refresher workshop. If you would like to take STAT 2040 Summer 2020 then register for the STAT 2040 refresher workshop.

*If you wish to take MATH 1090  Summer 2020 using a refresher workshop, sign up for either of the MATH 1050 refresher workshops.  After receiving the confirmation email with the override for MATH 1050, reply stating that you want to take MATH 1090  instead.

Students are responsible for knowing the date, time, and location of their workshop. If the location is TBD the student must check back to find out the location. No reminder emails will be sent.

To Reiterate:

The Math Refresher Workshops may be used for placement one time only. They may only be used for placement the semester the Math Refresher Workshop is completed. ALEKS is an option when the Math Refresher Workshop no longer is.

  • IF YOU ARE LATE TO THE WORKSHOP, LEAVE EARLY, OR MISS A DAY, YOU WILL LOSE YOUR OVERRIDE AND BE ADMINISTRATIVELY WITHDRAWN FROM YOUR MATH COURSE FOR SUMMER 2020.

There is a non-refundable $1 cancellation fee for all workshops. It is recommended that students unable to register for their desired Summer course by May 4, 2020 contact Melissa Braithwaite at Melissa.braithwaite@uvu.edu  | 801.863.6426 | ROOM LA 109    for options.  No refunds will be made after 9 am, May 4, 2020.

In the event that attendance at the workshop is not possible, the ALEKS exam may also be used for placement.

A math advisor will send a confirmation email with your workshop registration information and, upon verification of a C or better in the prerequisite course, will process a system override allowing registration in UVU Summer 2020 classes. Please allow two business days for override processing.

  • NO REMINDER EMAILS WILL BE SENT AFTER THE OVERRIDE IS ENTERED.
  • REGISTRATION FOR MATH REFRESHER WORKSHOPS WILL CLOSE MAY 4TH AT 9:00am AND  WILL NOT REOPEN!
