Module

  • Welcome!

    This module has been designed to help you prepare for Math 050 at Yukon College.

    It focuses on skills that you should be familiar with before beginning Math 050.  Math 050 is a busy, challenging course and students who are well-prepared for it are more likely to be successful.

    This is an Independent Study module which means you will be correcting your own work as you go.

    When you need extra help understanding a lesson, there are links to short videos you can watch. These links are listed in the schedule with each lesson. 

    The Textbook is available below  and can be saved to your USB Key if you wish.  The Academic Support Centre will also have a printed copy if you would like to use it; however, it must not leave the Centre. 

    If you follow the Schedule and Instructions, you can complete this module in 18 days or in 3 1/2 weeks.
