The Principal Review for Incoming Students in Mathematics (PRISM) was created by a group of engineering students at CSU Sacramento with the goal of promoting the success of future students in their math courses. PRISM will assess the needs of each student and offer individual instruction and advice.
PRISM is an innovative, intensive program lasting five weeks. The program is designed for students who do not pass the university's diagnostic exams for Pre-Calculus and Calculus courses. PRISM has components from basic arithmetic through advanced Algebra, preparing students for university level Pre-Calculus.
PRISM students are assessed at the beginning and end of the program. The program focuses on three areas: General Mathematics, Algebra I, and Algebra II.PRISM participants will progress from memorizing math facts to understanding mathematics. They will find enjoyment in their new power, develop confidence in their ability, and realize that they have the skills and tools to succeed as an engineering student.
