Precalculus Program

Are you taking one of Math 134, 144, or 154? Do you need to brush up on your algebra skills? Are you rusty on trigonometry? Then the Precalculus program is for you.

You can watch a short presentation of the Precalculus program.

The Precalculus program is designed to offer you review and practice of high school math skills as you require them in your calculus course. The six week Precalculus program, taken concurrently with your calculus course, consists of three hours of lectures per week plus additional drop-in help sessions. At the end of the six week program, there will be an opportunity to continue in the program for an additional six weeks. 

Take the self-advisory test and compare your answers with the test solutions to help decide whether you should enrol in the Precalculus program.

Registration for Precalculus Part II is open on the UAlberta Marketplace.
