Peak Performance Summer Mathematics Bridge Program
The Peak Performance Mathematics Summer Bridge Program seeks to bridge the gap between high school and college through offering a free academic math program to increase math placement.
Peak Performance is an online Summer program, designed to help incoming freshmen whose math placement is lower than desired. This can set back a student’s plan to graduate on time, so we offer this as a free service to help our students. Peak Performance is not a requirement. Students will be matched with a peer Math Coach who provides academic and “transition to campus” support during the summer.
The main advantage to this program is twofold: the students’ resulting preparation to improve their math placement by retaking the math placement exam and their pairing with a peer math coach who divulges their insights of campus life and is knowledgeable about resources available to the student here at NAU.
What our students said...
“Peak Performance was really great for me personally because I had just completed Calculus I in high school, but I was placed into Pre-Calculus. As a Physics and Astronomy major, we need to take Physics I our first semester and Calc I is a co-requisite. I needed a way to get there. Peak Performance prepares you for the NAU math placement test to try and get you into your desired course. Without it, I would be a semester behind” – Kaitlyn
“Kyndra really helped stay me on track during the Peak Performance Program. She explained all the material we reviewed and answered any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this program, and Kyndra, to anyone looking to improve on their math skills!” – Sierra
“Perfecto was AWESOME! Super helpful and he really cared about my learning as a whole rather than just the earning of points. He is a fantastic teacher. Anyone lucky enough to get him next summer will be very happy!” – Mikayla
“My math coach was amazing! She was so professional, but completely comforting in terms of getting me ready for my placement test and becoming a new student at NAU. I was very nervous coming into this program, but after the experience with my math coach, I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to either get ahead or brush up on their math skills.” – Callie
