BC’s Mathematics Bridge Academy aims to help improve skills

Mon Jun 8, 2015

For some, mathematics skills come naturally. For others, however, math courses, such as Algebra I, can be among the biggest challenges upon entering college.

It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, Brazosport College is helping students get a head start toward understanding and mastering these skills.

With Brazosport College’s summer Mathematics Bridge Academy, junior high and high school students can develop their study skills while learning about the college-going culture.

The Math Bridge Academy is not only perfect for students who already have good math skills but are looking to step up to the next level, but also for those who are struggling with math. It’s also helpful for students looking for future career options.

Registration for the Math Bridge Academy is ongoing and summer sessions are open to any student with Algebra I needs. Each Academy session is a three-week program, with classes from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.

Two sessions are available to choose from, with the next Academy running June 29 to July 16. Another Academy is scheduled from July 20 to August 6. The cost to attend one of the sessions is $41.

Students can register for the Academy by visiting www.brazosport.edu/mathbridge
 and registering through Brazosport College Community Education. For more information, call (979) 230-3293 or e-mail mathbridge@brazosport.edu.
