Make Math a part of your Summer To-Do List with QCC’s Math Boot Camp

April, 2019
  • Professor Sheiba Mas-Oud explains math concepts

At Quinsigamond Community College, student success is the number one priority, and making sure students have a solid academic foundation is paramount. The College’s mathematics department has tailored its program in order to make sure that foundation is rock solid, by offering a variety of support services that will give students the footing they need to succeed in mathematics as they move forward in their lives. Once again the college will be offering its Math Boot Camps to help QCC students succeed in their math placements test and in their required college mathematics courses. The week-long sessions are free to QCC students.

Mathematics Professor Sheiba Mas-Oud teaches the majority of the courses and has been instrumental in making the program a huge success. Each boot camp session lasts for a week and each class is four hours long. During the sessions Mr. Mas-Oud will go over all three developmental mathematics classes (MAT 090,095 and 099). Mr. Mas-Oud’s classes are designed to help students understand the math concepts they will need to succeed in college mathematics. Each day students are given two 45-minute lectures on various math topics, often giving humorous real-world examples that enable students to grasp the concepts he is teaching. Students will also have a study plan created for them on MyMathLab based on his/her placement test scores, along with appropriate tests on basic mathematics. In order for students to retake the math placement test, students are expected to complete at least 80% of their study plan.

The 2019 Summer Math Boot Camp Session Weeks will be held at QCC’s main campus 670 West Boylston Street, Worcester in the Administration building, with the exception of the week of July 22-July 26 when a session will be held at the college’s main campus and QCC Southbridge.
