College Algebra Precalculus Prep (CAP2) is a self-paced prep program designed to help you prepare and be successful in your Math 3 classes. 

Why CAP2?

  • Be a part of a community of fellow classmates 
  • Strengthen your math background
  • Review specific topics related to Math003
  • AND complete your math class the same semester

The CAP2 Commitment

CAP2 is a great option to prepare for your upcoming transfer level math class, but it takes a commitment. In order to take CAP2 you must be willing to:

  1. Although this is a self-paced program we recommend a minimum of 15 hours per week spent on the CAP2 module
  2. Pace yourself to complete 5-7 topics per week
  3. Make sure to score at least an 80% on each topic
  4. Attend MSC Support Groups when needed
  5. Receive MSC Tutoring when needed
  6. Visit the MSC for signatures upon topic/module completion
