Question for my college math professor.


Greetings Professor,

I just signed up for a Math class of yours next semester. 

The last time I took Math was approximately 25 years ago. I passed the Accuplacer to get into CUNY and that was about it. 

I don’t know anything about Math. I’m a journalism major. The reason I’m contacting you is to see if there is anything I can do now to start getting ready for class? 

I don’t know what the rules are about asking a professor if there is anything I can do to start preparing early. I contacted a professor that teaches Spanish and the professor told me what the textbook is going to be early so I guess it’s allowed and up to the professor’s discretion. 

In addition to not having taken any math for 25 years, I also know we have about a month off between this semester and when we start next semester. I am trying to figure out ways to use that month productively. If there is anything I can do to brush up on my math or start studying please let me know. I contacted the math department to ask them too. I’ll also search Google and YouTube.  

If you can provide any guidance or feedback that would be excellent. If not it’s no big deal. I look forward to taking your class. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward, 

Mark Pine
