WHAT IS IT?                                                                                                                                                                                                           Cuesta QuickStart is a Math Skills Refresher course for certain students taking pre-college-level math classes (Intermediate Algebra and below).  It uses an online learning format called ALEKS to assess your math knowledge level and then helps you fill in the gaps in the knowledge needed for the particular course.  You work at your own speed, with the support of Math instructors and trained tutors.  After completing the workshop, if you are a new student or have never taken a math class at Cuesta, you will re-take the Cuesta Math Assessment test with the goal of assessing into a higher math level.

WHEN IS IT?                                                                                                                                                                                                        Two weeks of Monday through Thursday, covering June 19-29, 2017, for three hours per day, either in the morning or in the afternoon.  Workshops are taught on both the North County and the San Luis Obispo campuses.
