FOR INCOMING FRESHMEN AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
Get a head start! Register for MP2 and get the support you need to be successful in college.
As an incoming freshman or high school student, you are eligible to register for the Mathematics Preparation Program (MP2) before you officially begin your college career.
MP2 offers two summer courses. The first course is a mathematics course that will prepare students for collegelevel mathematics using researchsupported, innovative mathematics teaching techniques and enrichment activities based on national and state standards. The enrichment activities will help students build a solid foundation of fundamental mathematical concepts and procedures necessary for success in college mathematics courses and college courses with a quantitative reasoning emphasis. Depending on placement during New Student Orientation, the mathematics course may earn credits towards graduation.
The second course is an enhanced English Composition course. Students will build a solid foundation in grammar and professional writing techniques. Participants who successfully complete the English Composition I course will earn three (3) college credits towards graduation.
Students attending the MP2 summer course will …
 Develop a more positive disposition regarding one’s capacity, confidence, and inclination to “do mathematics”;
 Develop a stronger understanding of rational numbers and operations involving rational numbers;
 Develop reasoning skills that are necessary for organizing one’s mathematical knowledge and applying that knowledge to novel problems;
 Develop sensemaking skills to successfully interpret mathematical definitions and contextualized problem situations;
 Demonstrate the ability to make generalizations to create mathematical rules, formulas, and equations; and
 Justify and debate mathematical arguments.
