Hawaii Community College will hold Math Refresher Boot Camps the last week in June at the UH Center West Hawaii Kealakekua Campus in Kona and at Kanu o ka Aina New Century Public Charter School in Waimea.
The Boot Camps are free and open to individuals who have applied and been accepted to Hawaii Community College, received a grade of C or better in high school algebra I and are interested in a career and technical education program of study (culinary, administration of justice, carpentry, auto mechanics, hospitality, etc.)
The 20-hour boot camps are designed to refresh participants’ knowledge of math topics. Participants should then be able to retake and score higher on the Compass Math Placement test.
A higher score may mean they can forgo a developmental math class, saving both time and money, said an HCC spokesman.
