Take an Online Math Class in Summer 2023
UConn’s Department of Math offers several fully online 3-credit Math courses to help you get ahead, save money, or catch-up. Summer online math classes are taught by UConn instructors and are delivered within an asynchronous format. You can participate at any time of day from nearly anywhere.
Problem Solving (MATH 1020Q)
An introduction to the techniques used by mathematicians to solve problems. Skills such as Externalization (pictures and charts), Visualization (associated mental images), Simplification, Trial and Error, and Lateral Thinking learned through the study of mathematical problems.
