MATH4U - Available August 2021

MATH4U is a specially designed math refresher resource for first-year students entering degree programs at Carleton with a math component. Having a strong base of mathematics knowledge and knowing study techniques to approach the subject material are essential in first-year university math. MATH4U ensures that students have the building blocks they need to participate and succeed in math-intensive university programs and is coordinated by the Science Student Success Centre in the Faculty of Science.

All incoming 1st year undergraduate students with a math component to their program will be automatically enrolled on Brightspace for access to free, pre-recorded lectures and knowledge evaluation tests that cover math fundamentals. If you would like access to the material and do not have first year standing, please email mathmatters [at]

Material is split up based on Faculty to allow students to cater their review to their specific needs. The lectures will cover a variety of basics such as:

  • Algebra (basic algebra, intervals, and simplifying algebraic expressions)
  • Equations (solving equations and inequalities, special formulas)
  • Graphs
  • Transcendental functions
  • Trigonometry
