Math Multiple Repeater Workshop
-Frequently Asked Questions-

  1. What is the Math Multiple Repeater Workshop?
    -The Math Workshop is a program specifically designed for students who have failed Math 1 or Math 2 two or more times. Instead of taking the traditional Math M1 or M2 class, students enroll in a workshop. At the completion of the math workshop, the student will take over the portion of the exam they previously failed.
  2. Who is eligible for the workshop?
    -Students who took either Math M1 or M2 at least two times.
  3. How can I sign up for the workshop?
    -A Math M1 or M2 request form must be filled out, which is available in L-605.
  4. Am I guaranteed a seat once I fill out the request form?
    -No, seating is limited and offered on first come first serve basis.
  5. When is the workshop offered?
    -The workshop is offered throughout the academic year (fall, winter, spring & summer).
  6. Can I be enrolled in the class and a workshop at the same time?
    -No, once eligible for the workshop, you don t need to be in a traditional class. The workshop substitutes your traditional class for the semester. Seats for each workshop are limited; therefore you can only take one seat, in one workshop.
  7. What happens after I complete my workshop hours?
    -The Director of the program will set you up to re-test. You take the same exit exam as those who are enrolled in a regular Math course.
  8. How is the workshop set up?
    -Students are placed in a small group setting (10 students per group).
  9. Is attendance mandatory?
    -Yes, more than 2 absences will result in the student's dismissal from the program. Your
    attendance is tracked weekly. It is important to stay in touch with us regarding unexpected
    emergencies (718-368-5118).
  10. Do I have to pay for the workshop?
    -No, the workshop is free. However, you must be matriculated during the semester which you are enrolled in the workshop.
  11. What is ALEKS?
    - Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. Students are required to complete a minimum of 1 hour of software use a week.
