Math Preparation

As an engineering student, and in your future career as an engineer, math is essentially a language that you’ll need to be fluent in. To help you to get off to a great start, we have a number of resources for math preparation and support.

  • An email with an individual link to online math quizzes on high school topics (calculus, algebra, functions, graphing, trigonometry, logarithms and exponentials) will be sent to all incoming first-year students in early August. This will help you identify problem areas to review.
  • To assist in the review process, the U of T Department of Mathematics has a great online resource you can use.
  • Part of the First Year Foundations summer programs, Calculus Boot Camp is an in-person, week-long opportunity to brush up on areas that you need to improve.
