The Math Bridge Program is an online program designed to help students gain the skills and confidence needed for success in college-level mathematics with a goal of improving their placement scores, using ALEKS. The program combines online learning through customized modules with instruction from expert math instructors and peer tutors to help students gain a better understanding of core math concepts and overcome anxiety about math. In addition to math instruction and skill development, students are introduced to various campus resources and peers to help build a strong foundation for success at UNLV. Our Math Bridge team works to help students develop a growth mindset and reach their goals as they navigate through a five or eight-week program. Currently, all Math Bridge sessions are conducted during summer sessions for eligible students.
The program utilizes an online platform, ALEKS, to evaluate students' learning and to create customized content for each student. ALEKS is also used as the math placement software for UNLV. Most students that participate in Math Bridge find success in raising their ALEKS score to their goal level, which allows them to enroll in a different 100-level math course for their desired major.
