Math Topics for Standardized Tests (GRE, MTEL, etc.)
The Spinelli Center for Quantitative Learning will hold a set of nine workshops for those interested in reviewing some basic math skills that should be helpful when studying for the Graduate Record Exams (GRE) or the MTEL (Massachusetts teacher exam for licensure). This is not a GRE or MTEL review, but we will be reviewing topics that are included on the GRE and typically show up on standardized tests.
There are no other courses at Smith that cover material that is directly related to the material for the GRE, so this is really the most efficient use of your time if you would like to attend these review workshops. Come to one or come to all. No registration required.
