AUM Math Boot Camp (aka MATH placement program) is a non-credit, web-based math placement preparation program for undergraduate Warhawk students to improve their placement in their first AUM math course or placement into an advanced mathematics course. We encourage new incoming Warhawks to complete the boot camp before their scheduled Student Orientation. As a boot camp participant, we want to ensure you soar at AUM through the successful completion of your math courses!
Since each of the above courses requires 5 hours of class time each week, placing out of just 1 math course will free up 90+ hours plus study and transit time over the course of a semester.
The fewer classes students take, the sooner they may graduate!
Several programs require math pre-requisites (e.g. Pre-calculus) to enter higher-level courses. Students who can complete these math pre-requisites early in their program will be able to take the courses they need when they need them.
1) Students who have not yet participated in the program
2) Students whose ALEKS accounts are still valid and have remaining attempts to take the placement test.
Note: Students are allotted 4 attempts to take a proctored placement test, and they have one year from when they register for an ALEKS PPL account to use those attempts.
You will need the following items to register:
~All camps are online and self-paced. Students will work through online math modules and have access to an instructor who will answer any questions they may have about the course or the material. Additionally, students will have access to AUM’s free tutoring centers—the Instructional Support Lab (244-3265) and the Learning Center (244-3470)—if they need additional support.
~The Math Boot Camp uses the AI-driven web-based software ALEKS PPL. The goal is to provide ample opportunities and guided assistance for students looking to improve their math placement and college math readiness.
~Only a proctored ALEKS Placement Test can be used for official math placement. You will need a webcam and picture ID (e.g. AUM ID or Driver’s License) to complete a proctored exam from home. Please make arrangements with your instructor to complete a proctored exam on campus if needed.
**Note Regarding Registering for your Math Class:
Once you have completed the program and earned the ALEKS placement score you are happy with, please contact your advisor for guidance. Once your new score is entered into our system, you will be able to register for the math class for which you are now eligible using the appropriate alternate PIN.
If you have any questions, please contact Julie Berube in the Math Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
