LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering free Math classes to help individuals improve their Math skills in order to pass the Accuplacer Test that is required by colleges in order to begin taking classes towards a degree.
These classes are designed to help students improve their math skills and scores so that when they go on to post-secondary educational opportunities, they will be able to enroll in regular courses leading to their degree as opposed to having to spend time in remedial math classes.
The Accuplacer Test that is given on a college level is a battery of computerized tests that determines a students' knowledge in math, reading and writing as they prepare to enroll in college level courses. The results of this assessment, in conjunction with the students' academic background, goals and interests, are used by the college academic coordinators and counselors to place students into college level courses that meet their needs. The Accuplacer also helps colleges to determine the students' strengths and weaknesses and to provide them with early academic help if necessary.
Laconia Adult Education is providing Lakes Region residents with the opportunity to refresh their math skills and ensure that the college experience has a successful and positive outcome without being required to take remedial classes. Daytime classes are offered Monday – Thursday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and are offered through June The evening Adult Basic Education Math Clinic meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-8:30 p.m. and are offered through April. Both classes are free and will provide community residents and college bound students with the math skills necessary to succeed in work opportunities or post-secondary educational experiences. For more information or to register for classes, contact the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712.
