Math Resource Page

This website provides a resource for students who want to review or refresh Math Skills. Below you will find a list of courses and the skills that are required for success in the course. The list of courses will be updated on a regular basis.
We are suggesting the use of MathXL since it provides a comprehensive environment that will satisfy the remedial needs of university students. An extensive list of textbooks is available to the subscriber, making it is possible to use the program to prepare for more than one course. The program is priced at $82 for a 1 year subscription.
Purchase MathXL
There are two options available to subscribe to Math XL. You can purchase a Student Access Kit from the GMU bookstore or go to the website below to purchase your subscription online.
