The goals of Tech Prep are to:
Provide students with 20+ instructional hours on fundamental calculus concepts that are critical to success in MATH 1551 (Differential Calculus) and 1552 (Integral Calculus) and MATH 1712 (Survey of Calculus). The concepts covered are based on faculty observation of problems commonly experienced by students in Tech calculus courses and are the ones that typically cause some first-year students to under-perform at Tech, even though they may have performed well in AP Calculus.
Introduce students to the advanced college learning environment including the lecture format, classroom technology, faculty expectations, college-level exams, and faculty evaluation of student performance in the college classroom.
Provide opportunities for students to work with peer mentors who are successful Georgia Tech students. Through Peer-Led Undergraduate Study (PLUS) sessions, participants will gain an understanding of good study techniques and study skills, and participate in collaborative learning activities designed to enhance learning and improve student performance. PLUS sessions will combine "what to study" with "how to study" in college.
Offer Academic Success workshops and programs that will address common topics relevant to first-year student success. These workshops will be highly interactive and will include information about Undergraduate Research Programs, Study Abroad, and participation in the Georgia Tech Leadership Challenge Course to develop teamwork and leadership skills.
Enrollment in Tech Prep is limited. To be eligible, participants must be incoming Georgia Tech first-year students. Students who are enrolling in either Math 1551 (Differential Calculus), 1552 (Integral Calculus), or Math 1712 (Survey of Calculus) are strongly encouraged to apply. This course is not designed for students who know BC Calculus.
Please note that Tech Prep is a non-credit-bearing program, and some financial aid and scholarships may not be used towards the cost of the program. Check with your financial aid counselor if you have questions.
