Math Booster Courses

  • What are math booster courses?

    Math booster courses are our commitment to you realizing your potential at Wentworth. During the summer, we will offer math booster courses to students interested in improving their math skills and abilities, so they are fully prepared to start the first-year math course required for their intended major. As a bonus, if after completing the booster you can pass both parts of the MP, you will receive a $200 in credit on your account!

  • When are the math booster courses?

    Math booster courses will run June 30 to August 11.

  • Can I take more than one math booster course?

    No, you may only take one math booster course.

  • Are the booster courses on-campus, online, hybrid, or something else?

    Booster Level 1 (June 30 to August 11):

    • On-Campus MTWR 1:00-2:50 pm
    • Online Synchronous section MTWR 7:00-8:50 pm
    • Online Asynchronous (no scheduled meeting times)

    Booster Level 2 (June 30 to August 11):

    • On-Campus MTWR 1:00-2:50 pm
    • Online Synchronous section MTWR 7:00-8:50 pm
    • Online Asynchronous (no scheduled meeting times)

    Booster Level 3 (June 30 to August 11):

    • On-Campus TR 10-11:50 am
    • Online Synchronous section TR 7:00-8:50 pm
    • Online Asynchronous (no scheduled meeting times)
  • I am interested in an online booster course. What is the difference between the synchronous and asynchronous options?

    Synchronous courses mean that the courses will include meetings at a specific date and time, so they typically contain more scheduled opportunities to connect with your instructor and classmates. Asynchronous courses do not require regular meetings, but your instructor may schedule optional meetings or opportunities to connect. Asynchronous does NOT mean self-paced; you will still have a course schedule and due dates.

  • Which booster course should I take, depending on my intended major?

    Three (3) math booster courses are available:

    • Math Booster Level 1 will prepare students for MATH-1500 Precalculus.
    • Math Booster Level 2 will prepare students for MATH-1750 Engineering Calculus 1 (the Engineering Calculus track).
    • Math Booster Level 3 will prepare students for MATH-1776 Calculus 1A (the Calculus Sequence track).

    If your intended major is Applied Math, Biomedical Engineering, Biological Engineering, Computer Science, or Cybersecurity, you can take Math Booster Level 1, 2, or 3.

    If your intended major is Applied Sciences, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electromechanical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering, you can take Math Booster Level 1 or 2 (Level 3 is not available to your major).

    Check your individualized plan for your personal details.

  • Can I change my booster modality at any point?

    You may request to change your booster modality via math@wit.edu for approval.
