The summer math refresher program is open to any student enrolled at Indiana State University in the upcoming academic year. It was designed to benefit students that plan to take Math 015 (Fundamentals of Algebra I), Math 035 (Fundamentals of Algebra II), Math 115 (College Algebra), Math 241 (Principles of Statistics), or Math 131 (Calculus I), but may have deficiencies in skills necessary to succeed in that Math class.

Cost to students is $50 which will be refunded in the form of a Barnes & Noble gift card if the student completes the program. The student will also be eligible to retake the Maple TA placement test at a designated location. The program will run July 10 - August 4 through Blackboard. There will be a calendar of topics given, but students are welcome to set their own timetable. Tutors will also be available through Blackboard Collaborate, Yuja, and on campus at scheduled times.
