MUN to close Math Learning Centre

July 27, 2016

Under pressure to cut costs, Memorial University will be closing its Math Learning Centre in September. The centre offers foundation level math courses to university students seeking to upgrade basic math skills before taking Math 1090, which is a prerequisite course for many MUN degree programs. The university determines whether first-year students need to take a foundation math course by their high school math mark or a math placement test. Mark Abrahams, MUN’s Dean of Science, says that the school will instead offer the Math 1090 course over a two semester timespan to students who require more time to absorb the material. CBC
