Build student readiness and confidence by offering a FREE Math Readiness Bootcamp in WebAssign.

For use as a pre-course refresher or start-of-course diagnostic, the Bootcamp contains assignments on prerequisite topics needed for success in college courses.

Each chapter of the bootcamp will take roughly 60 to 90 minutes to complete and the remaining time to finish the bootcamp will depend on how much remediation the student needs. Each assignment includes a reading excerpted from a Cengage text and other resources to help students review and refresh on prerequisite topics.

Prepare students for the following courses.
  • Differential Equations
  • University Physics
  • Engineering
