Preparing for the admissions math requirements
Many of our applicants and their families have asked us to refer resources to them for preparing for standardized tests. Other families have also simply wanted to give their students a stronger background in math prior to attending college. Below we have provided information and links to a variety of resources aimed at strengthening one’s confidence and ability in high school mathematics. Our faculty are also available and eager to help! Below you will find links to the bios and contact information of our Dean and several of our professors of the mathematics courses at WCC.
A classic resource that will teach entire courses or select problems for free. Students can take courses on entire areas of mathematics, such as statistics or algebra, or just watch a simple tutorial on something they have trouble with.
From the Hippocampus website:
HippoCampus.org is a free, core academic web site that delivers rich multimedia content–videos, animations, and simulations–on general education subjects to middle-school and high-school teachers and college professors, and their students, free of charge. Students use the site in the evenings for study and exam prep. Users do not need to register or log in to use the site.
For those wanting a strict accountable schedule, this site offers online classes that you enroll in for a three month period (not work at your own pace.) It is a little expensive, but they also offer some free online resources for select problems: Percentages, functions, graphing, etc.
No free resources but provides k-12 math programs with a lot of content. We may be adopting this program for our current students who need tutoring.
