Students can enhance math skills with Numeracy Zone

McMaster students who need extra help with math can take advantage of a new online tool, Numeracy Zone.

Part of the popular Academic Zone educational enterprise, Numeracy Zone features modules that help students develop and refine their mathematics skills in four specific areas: transitional math, statistics, algebra and equations of lines. Topics include percentages, fractions, decimals, ratios, rates, graphs, algebraic equations, standard deviation, confidence intervals and probability.

Through a series of online videos, practice problems, examples and easy-to-understand lessons, Numeracy Zone helps students develop skills needed for success in math-related courses.

To access Numeracy Zone, students must complete an online request form. Upon completion, an access code will be sent to you within two business days.
