The Accuplacer test went well and my daughter scored high enough to get into the college math class she needed to take. We really liked the program. It was great how there were the explanation videos which were really good and then the practice and then the quizzes. I liked how if she already knew something we could skip right to the quiz part and if she was struggling with something we could watch the explanations a couple times and then see the practice problems worked. I wasn’t sure how I was going to get her ready for that placement test before I found your program and it was just what we needed. I would definitely recommend it.

Passed the math placement test! I liked the course very much, simple to navigate, videos are very easy to follow; loved the practice part and small test after every lesson. I think you guys did an amazing job putting this together! Thank you!

I haven't taken a formal math class for 25+ years. I was worried about the placement test for re enrolling in college. Math help did a great job dusting off the cobwebs and taught me enough to get into the course I needed. I thought the lessons were very good and thorough to give me the refreshers I needed to get the job done.

My math placement test was so great, I was able to enter directly into my college class without taking the test a second time. I am so grateful. The elements of the course that were most helpful for me were radicals, addition of polynomials, measurements (a lot of questions here), inequalities, and word problems. Again thank you so much, my twin brother is about to subscribe because he also has a math placement test very soon. I told him about this, but he did not believe me. Now, the results have spoken, and he wants to take the course too.

I work as an elementary teacher. I had to enroll in a Math for Teachers course with Thompson Rivers University. I signed up for MathHelp’s Math Placement Test Prep in preparation for my university course. I did this as a refresher, because I went to high school over 30 years ago. I actually had fun doing Mathhelp’s course. I loved it for many reasons. The teachers are excellent. The videos and explanations are short and clear, and every unit is very thorough. The review exercises were excellent as well: just the right amount and difficulty. I loved being able to add a checkmark on every unit I had mastered, and by the end of the course I felt prepared and confident. It took a lot of anxiety off going back to university to take a Math course as a mature student. It was totally worth it: I did fantastic at my Math for Teachers course, and I was probably more prepared than most of the students in my cohort. Thank you! I 100% recommend it. My daughter is in grade 6, so I will probably sign up again for courses for her when she is in high school. Thank you for your fantastic courses!

Helped me complete a placement test to land in the class I need. The videos were super clear. They showed EVERY step, which had been a problem I was encountering with other learning sites. The instructions were well paced and easy to follow. Also, it gave me enough questions to actually practice the concept I just learned. Being able to practice over and over again, with fresh questions, on the test at the end of each segment was the best part. I'll use it again down the line.

I started using MathHelp because I was going to take a placement test to go back to College. The test went really well. My score on Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics was 274 which is very good for the Next-Gen Accuplacer test. The lady at the College said it was the best score she had seen in a while. I have nothing but to thank MathHelp for the review and the very well structured and easy to follow classes, it really helped me. I'm starting College Algebra this upcoming Spring Semester and will definitely come back to MathHelp in case I need some outside help.

This is a great program that is very straightforward and helpful. I struggle with math and need a higher placement score on the ALEKS test to finish my Bachelor's degree. I studied with the MathHelp step by step plan for a month and did well enough that I placed into my class! Thanks MathHelp!

First of all, the order in which your course is structured—lessons, practise exercises, tests, and finally reviews—helped me grasp and assess how well I'm learning a certain topic. This increased my self-assurance while simultaneously addressing my weak areas. There is nothing that could be added because everything is flawless, and I truly appreciate how well everything is laid up. I'm grateful to your organization and the course for helping me perform well on the math placement test for my college. I appreciate your efforts and those of your staff.

I'm a returning college student who hasn't taken a math class in nearly 5 years. I felt like I needed somewhere I could build on my fundamentals, so I turned to MathHelp. I started with the first ALEKS lesson on MathHelp, watching all the videos, and taking every test until I could pass with a 100% all the way up to the end of exponential and logarithmic equations, which was lesson 179. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my time using MathHelp. Topics I remember as being complicated, like logarithms, were actually very easy to understand thanks to the short video format of the lessons. Recently I took the ALEKS placement assessment and scored well enough to place into pre calculus. I’m impressed I was able to do that well, going from barely remembering the fundamentals of algebra to nearly placing into calculus.

It was beneficial! Not only does this prepare you for the placement test, but it prepares you for mathematics as a subject in general. This is the best maths course money can buy. I was initially skeptical, but I am glad I tried it. I got 68/75 for my maths placement score.

I am so glad I found your program - it helped me so much. I've been out of school for over 20 years and I recently enrolled in the Kansas State dietetics program. I was freaking out over the algebra placement exam because I couldn't remember anything. After completing your program, I scored a 34 (I only needed a 21 to get into college algebra). So, thank you for your great program, I couldn't have done it without you 😃

I am a 50+ who decided to go back to school late in life. I need to take College Algebra to obtain my degree. To avoid prerequisite math classes, I needed to pass their placement test.It has been a “a few years” since I took a math class. I needed to study and searched for online courses. I came across many sites, but Mathhelp.com had the best setup, so I signed up. The course covers everything you will need to know. I went through the entire course and took the final exam a few times as reinforcement.The courses are put together in an easy-to-follow manner and provide everything you will need to pass any math test. The layout was easy to follow. The video, followed by practice, followed by the questions were so easy to follow. It is all on one page. There is no navigating back and forth. If you get one wrong, you are given a step-by-step explanation on how to get the correct answer. The reinforcement of each concept is helpful. The videos really make it so easy to learn. The three instructors are great and teach each subject clearly and in a detailed manner.Whether your child is struggling in elementary school, or you are a college student who needs some extra help, Mathhelp.com is the solution to your needs.I aced my placement test. I now feel fully prepared for the College Algebra class I'm taking next semester. I highly recommend this course.

What is University of Colorado Boulder known for?

The University of Colorado Boulder’s first building, Old Main, opened in 1876, and in 1877, its first female professor, Mary Rippon, was hired, establishing an early tradition of gender equality.  The university benefits from its history and long-standing traditions.  For example, much enjoyment is gained from a buffalo named Ralphie, the school’s mascot, who runs across Folsom Field before games.  However, the university is also the site of progressive degree and research programs, including work with NASA.  The school’s 2019 student population of 35,967 represented 52 per cent of the University of Colorado System’s entire enrollment.  The Higher Learning Commission provides the university’s main accreditation.

For the 2016-2017 school year, the freshman class was represented by an average GPA of 3.66.  The class’s average scores were 27.3 on the ACT and 1191 on the SAT.  These factors are taken into consideration when determining course placement.  However, students may also need to take placement tests in chemistry, foreign languages, and math.  The Math Readiness Test, or a proctored Math Placement Test, are given to students intending to take pre-calculus or calculus.  AP and IB scores sent to the university may result in credit.

The university’s School of Education provides a number of opportunities.  Among its undergraduate degree offerings are a BA in Leadership and Community Engagement and a BA in Elementary Education.  The school also has a BAM Concurrent Degree Program in Ethnic Studies and Education.  Students interested in teaching STEM subjects can take advantage of the nationally recognized CU Teach program, which includes an engineering program.  For students who are particularly interested in teaching, the school offers teacher licensure pathways.  In order to ultimately gain certification through the State Board of Education, graduates will need to prepare for the approved content tests, such as the Praxis, the PLACE, the NES, and the ASWB.
