Math Summer Background Preparation (ALEKS)

Faculty of Science and Lassonde School of Engineering students only

This summer math background preparation program is designed to help you review your knowledge of elementary trigonometry and algebra and to identify any gaps in preparation you may have in these areas.

We have found that such gaps are not uncommon and can hurt performance in first-year math courses. Fortunately, such gaps, once identified, are easily dealt with. It is a good idea to deal with these, if possible, before you start your first year courses.

Note: You will need to create your Passport York account before you enroll.

Science Summer Module Course

Available to all students entering the Faculty of Science in the fall.

The Faculty of Science offers Summer Transition modules for incoming students. These modules are meant to help consolidate students’ knowledge from their grade 12 classes in preparation for university level study. The Math module is particularly effective and is recommended for those who wish to strengthen their math skills.
