A summer collaboration between the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Math Department and the College of Engineering and Computer Science can help current and incoming UTC students qualify to skip pre-calculus.
Calculus Prep Camp, which takes place July 26-Aug. 5, is a two-week program aimed at students with a math ACT score of 24 or higher. During the camp, academically qualified students will prepare for a qualifying exam that allows them to enroll in Math 1950 without completing any additional pre-calculus courses—assuming students pass the exam.
Calculus is a required course in many majors, including math, engineering and computer science. Testing out of pre-calculus equates to a $1,649 savings in tuition and fees saved.
All applicant fees, lunch, dinner (for those staying on campus) and calculators will be covered by the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Participants will have the option to stay on campus or commute each day.
Taught by UTC Mathematics faculty, Calculus Prep Camp combines lectures, small group interactions, practice and homework using computer-based software. The camp, which is limited to 60 registrants, will also include several scheduled outings on campus and in downtown Chattanooga.
Application and payment deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, July 8.
