Math Bridging Program

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is offering graduating NL high school students who plan to attend Memorial in the fall semester a bridging program to ensure that students will be ready to begin their fall studies in mathematics at the level expected prior to the COVID-19 disruption to classes.

Bridge to Algebra and Trigonometry

Students who intend to take Math 1090 in the Fall semester are offered a no-cost four week intensive non-credit program which will give students an opportunity to improve mathematics proficiencies necessary for success in that course. This program is open to new students who have done the equivalent of a grade 12 academic math course.

The program will begin with a diagnostic test, used to determine each student’s
weaknesses. The results of this test will be used to stream students to certain core topics. This will be followed by a four week collection of modules based on these core topics from our pre-calculus course, Math 1090. Modules will be scheduled, with required dates for completion.

Registration is now available for the non-credit bridging program for academic math students.

Bridge to Calculus I for Advanced Math Students

Students who finished grade 12 in Mathematics 3200* or an equivalent advanced math course, with the intention of taking Math 1000 in the Fall semester at Memorial will be permitted to register for a special online offering of Math 1090 to take place over 10 weeks, beginning June 4, 2020.

While Math 1090 may not be a required course for a desired program, it will count as an elective 3.0 credit hour course towards the 120 credit hours required for a degree at Memorial. This offering of Math 1090 will be online, with a non-numeric PAS/FAL grading system. As this is a credit course, standard tuition rates apply. This course should ensure that students are ready for Math 1000 in the fall semester.

Students who choose not to avail of the for-credit option may instead participate in the free, non-credit Bridging program described above.

*New Canadian students not from NL who have completed an equivalent course may participate if high school transcripts have been received and judged to include an equivalent course as assessed by the Office of the Registrar.

International students who believe they meet the entry requirements may contact mathbridging@mun.ca to request permission to register for the course.

Bridge to Calculus II for Mathematics 3208* Students

Students who took Math 3208 in the 2019-20 school year with the intention of taking Math 1001 in the Fall semester at Memorial will be permitted to register for a special online offering of Math 1000 to take place over 10 weeks, beginning June 4, 2020. The course will be graded as PAS/FAL and count as 3.0 credit hours towards a student’s degree. As this is a credit course, standard tuition rates apply.

Again, students who choose not to avail of the for-credit option may instead participate in the free, non-credit Bridging program described above.

*This option is restricted to Math 3208 students, and other new students who have completed a course in differential calculus in high school. New international students who have taken a course in differential calculus should contact mathbridging@mun.ca for permission to register.
