Union County College has partnered with innovative educational technology company Knewton to offer
Knewton Math Readiness, a web-based, adaptive math tool that helps prepare students for college-level math. Ideal for developmental math students as well as students preparing for the GED or ACCUPLACER exams, Knewton Math Readiness has increased pass rates in remedial math at some of the largest educational institutions in the country. Union County College is currently the only
community college in New Jersey offering Knewton Math Readiness.
There will be a live demonstration of this web-based math tool on Wednesday, January 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Victor M Richel Student Commons on the College’s Cranford campus, located at 1033 Springfield Avenue. This demonstration is free and open to the public.
Knewton Math Readiness works by allowing students to work at their own pace, skipping material they already know so they can focus on mastering new concepts. Students also have the opportunity to work in-person with highly qualified New Jersey certified math teachers. Offered through the Department of Continuing Education at Union County College, classes are eight weeks in
duration and require two hours per week of classroom instruction and eight to ten hours per week of independent online work. The math instructors are available online throughout the week.
In order to enroll, students should have a minimum of a sixth-grade math proficiency level. The program will be offered on the following dates: on the Cranford campus on Wednesdays starting January 23 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. and Saturday, February 2, from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. or 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. The program will also be offered on the
College’s Elizabeth campus, located at 40 West Jersey Street on Sunday, February 3, from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. or 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. For more information about this
program or to find out how to enroll, please contact Siobhan Marshall (908) 709-7614 or Siobhan.firstname.lastname@example.org.
