We have developed a Mathematics Readiness Course (MRC) intended for students entering any introductory mathematics course at a university. This program was initiated by Professor Keith Taylor of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Saskatchewan.
We have in-person versions of this course as well as an Internet (web-based) version.
Want more information about Math Readiness? Maybe one of the following web pages will help.
To find out more about the mathematical content of the Math Readiness courses (ie. what topics are discussed), go to our course content page.
To take a look at the website for the Internet version of Math Readiness, go to the here and click on Nonmembers.

Some of the exercises which were developed for the Math Readiness course have been collected at the website Exercises in Math Readiness. The website also contains brief discussions of some of the topics covered in Math Readiness.
This site could be useful for high school math teachers or their students, or anyone who is reviewing topics from high school mathematics.
