How it Works

The Clarkson University online Summer Refresher Program for STEM majors will launch 27 June Sat/Sun midnight with the unit 1 pre-test.

This 7 week program covers skills, that over 17 years of data tell us, students need a refresher on to be able to hit the ground running in the Fall. We encourage students to do a little math each week to keep the rust off.

The program is completely free from Clarkson and Cengage. There are no materials to buy at this time. (There will be a purchase for Fall in the future)  You will utilize, and email

Each week at Midnight on Sunday we release a pre-test of the topic for the week. You attempt the pre-test and we review the results and post solution videos with commentary. Additionally, we address inquiries either via email or through the communications portal in the Webassign platform. Next on Wednesday/Thursday Midnight we release the Post-test which considers not just topics of the week but topics from previous weeks. This spiraled approach means nothing gets stale and you can keep checking your skills though out the program. We follow this with solution videos to the post-test, usually available on Friday. The process then repeats through the 7 weeks. Also, for the first time ever we will offer Zoom sessions at arranged times that can work for the majority of participants.

If this is something you feel you are interested in merely go to Moodle. Should you have any concerns or difficulties please do not hesitate to ask the instructor at
