The University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Mathematics has introduced a new course designed to help secondary school students whose education was interrupted abruptly by COVID-19 sharpen their mathematical skills ahead of commencing their post-secondary education.

The new online, skills-based course, MTHEL 199, gives Waterloo’s incoming students extra practice in six branches of mathematics: inequalities and absolute values, radicals and rational expressions, trigonometry, exponential and logarithmic functions, polynomials and introductory calculus.
