Female Math Course
After an eightyear hiatus—and thanks to the generosity of the Central Brooklyn Economic Development Corporation, which is making classroom space available to us at 444 Thomas S. Boyland Street, Brooklyn, New York 11212—Helicon, Inc. will begin offering the Female Math Course again (obtain Course Flyer below).

The Female Math Course has been revised and is now aligned with rigorous Common Core Standards; it is is a comprehensive eightweek review of mathematics from basic arithmetic to introductory algebra and trigonometry (see Female Math Course Syllabus). The prerequisite for admission to the Female Math Course is attendance at the Day of RemediationMath class, attendance at an Intake Interview and at an Orientation Session.

The Female Math Course was specifically designed for New York City female test takers who are struggling to pass the high school equivalency math test (previously, the GED and now, the TASC). Research done by the Executive Director of Helicon, Inc. and a volunteer (Scott Joens, MSc, Senior Director of Data Analysis and Quality Management at Fitch Ratings) show that these women have been poorly served by Test Prep programs for years.

Although attendance at the Female Math Course is FREE, a book fee of $30 (to defray the cost of producing the Female Math Text [approximately 400 pages] and three other Workbooks [approximately 200 pages] will be collected from each student during the Orientation Session).
