Each year, the MSCF program will offer an optional mathematics preparation course. This course is in part a refresher course in calculus, covering some of the calculations that arise in subsequent MSCF courses, but it also covers related mathematics topics and helps students practice mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills. While this course is designed for those whose math skills may have become a bit rusty, the course has proven to be beneficial to nearly all MSCF students who take it.
This course is a problem-working seminar. Problems will be assigned and these and similar problems will be worked in class. The following is an example of the material you may see:
Individuals not enrolled in the MSCF program can participate in the class at a tuition of $3000. To qualify, submit your resume along with a list of previous calculus and probability courses taken to Jessica Bittel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
