COURSE OVERVIEW

18-week course plan: Math U See Zeta program and Survival Math Skills workbook.

COURSE NOTES

Math U See Zeta is NOT a high school course and cannot earn high school credits by itself.  (This about 6th to 8th grade math.)  By adding Survival Math Skills students can earn high school credits as they master the skills in Math U See Zeta.  Math should be studied 55 to 75 minutes per day to earn full credit.  If are spending using more than an hour per day for math, break your math sessions into two 40-minute sessions—and arrange a telephone appointment with your academic advisor to see what can be done to make math more manageable.

Scheduling Suggestions: At least 4hr 40min each week for 16 weeks = A full semester (75+ hours).
