Dates and Schedule

  • This five-week program runs from the last week of June to end of July.
  • You will watch content videos, which are accompanied by exercises in mathematical skill, at your own pace to review and learn math concepts. You will then join real-time discussions with your coach and peers during the live sessions every week to digest the learning content and master your learning.
  • Every week following the first, participants meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays for an hour in a small group with their coach.

Weekly Workflow

Weekly Workflow



  • We don’t give formal grades in ASCEND.  The idea is for you to build a community to assess yourself and see where you need to grow to be the best student you can be!  To help you in your assessment, you have a couple of tools at your disposal to help with keeping track of your milestones on this journey.
    • Complete an Incoming Self Assessment. 
    • Go through practice problem sets for each module in the adaptive Knewton Software.
    • Work in Small Groups on Applied Problem Sets with your New Classmates and an Upperclassman Coach!
    • Take the Reflection Assessment after ASCEND concludes to see how much you grew and what you still need to work on!
