Are your math skills a little rusty? This course is designed for individuals wishing to refresh their understanding of some core mathematical concepts such as arithmetic, fractions, decimals, word problems, simple geometry and beginning algebra. Self assessment tests are included to help measure proficiency. Let's see what you remember and what you may have forgotten. Refresher videos precede each quiz as extra help with problem solving. For the best measurement of your skills, do not use a calculator or get help from others. ~ Dr. TLC

Dr. Trina L. Coleman
Dr. Coleman has taught STEM courses for over 20 years. She has taught calculus-based physics at the high school, community college and university level and is passionate regarding the recently trending interest in exposing underrepresented students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programs. Her website, academicblueblood.com, is a playbook for partnering STEM mentors and donors with students interested in STEM for the long haul, in addition to providing enrichment opportunities. While at Howard University, she provided instruction for general astronomy courses and hybrid introductory physics I and II courses. She has presented her work nationally and internationally, and also performed unclassified research to help solve national defense issues as an Intelligence Community Post-doctoral Research Fellow while at Howard University. During the course of 11 years at Howard, Dr. Coleman’s career focus shifted from strictly pure research to IT Strategic Planning. She joined the administration as the Executive Director of Technology while maintaining her connection to the physics department where she mentored, published, taught and created online course materials. Additionally she launched the university’s iTunes U site. Dr. Coleman also served as the Assistant Provost for Technology at Hampton University for three years and holds a B.A., M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from Hampton University.
