Online Math Jumpstart

Welcome! If you are looking for resources to review concepts vital to a strong start in Precalculus & Calculus, I have created the following videos to help. For improved accessibility, I am working to edit the captions on the videos.

If you are accessing these videos to help you prepare for the UC Davis Math Placement Exam, you might be interested in participating in the official Online Math Jumpstart program offered through the Academic Assistance & Tutoring Centers. Click here to find out more!
