Let our reviews be your formula for success this semester!

Each prerequisite review is designed to prepare you for your quantitative course at UB by reviewing the necessary  mathematical skills required for a good foundation in that course. All reviews are taught by ALC Math Coordinator Yoosef Khadem.

You can participate in person or online through our virtual classroom. To reserve an in-person seat, RSVP through UB's web calendar. If you're interested in joining us online, contact the ALC for more information.
