The award winning STEM Center Math Jam Program offers the opportunity for Cañada College students to improve their Placement Test results in Mathematics or prepare for math courses that they will be taking. The goal of Math Jam is to help students complete their Associates Degree and/or transfer requirements for a 4-year college/university in less time than previously possible.
There are three Math Jam opportunities each year, all held during the intersession period that falls between semesters. Summer Math Jams are held in June and August and Winter Math Jam in January. Students can participate in either the Daytime or Evening Math Jams.
