Math Jam is FOR ALL STUDENTS - designed to help you achieve your math goals - from preparing for your upcoming math courses to preparing to re-take the Math Assessment (Placement) Test. Math Jam helps you complete your goal of a degree or transfer faster, while introducing you to a community of support and FREE resources at LPC.
It is FREE to all LPC students
During Math Jam you will work in a self-paced environment on the math YOU need support on. You will work with faculty and tutors in a fun and supportive environment. We will provide everything you need - including FOOD and supplies - just come ready to learn... Remember, it’s FREE.
"I reviewed more in one week than I feel like I have in any other class…. I learned much more than I thought possible, and all in all, this was a great way to spend my time before the semester started.”
“(Math Jam was) so help full. from my pre to my post test I jumped from 36% to 88%. Although what i like most is that it is the week before school starts. I am ready for school. After math jam I am excited for all my classes, not just math. I grow up with a poor education, was always behind in school, failing, not showing up. Never thought I would be here studying a week before school and excited for it.”
Math Jam Participants at Las Positas College have improved dramatically...
Students who have participated in Math Jam increase their success rates by 10% after
only one week of preparation!
Students who retake the placement test and jump into a higher math class also are more likely to succeed in their new level than the general population.
IT’S YOUR TURN!
