Personalized Precalculus Program (PPP)
The Personalized Precalculus Program (PPP) at Texas A&M University is a three-week, fully online program designed to improve the success rates of prospective students who will be taking a calculus course at Texas A&M. The short sessions are designed to reinforce the prerequisite concepts and skills that are needed for students to be successful in calculus. This type of on-demand learning is helpful for all students, particularly those students who have demonstrated weakness in their mathematical skill set as gauged by their score on the TAMU Math Placement Exam (MPE). We strongly encourage students who scored 70% or below on their MPE to enroll in a summer PPP session to strengthen their skills before taking their necessary math course in the fall semester.
are all synchronous and led by highly-qualified math tutors. All tutors in the program have at least 5-years precalculus or calculus teaching experience at either the high school or collegiate level. Because the sessions are “live,” all PPP participants are able to interact with the tutor via voice over IP, webcam, or text chat. In the nearly 10 years of PPP’s existence, students always report that the most valuable componenet of the PPP is having the tutors who work with the students daily for three-weeks.
