The Mathematics Department at Humber College has created resources for students to enhance their math skills using our online program called Math HeadStart. This resource contains a variety of learning materials, examples and exercises to help you practice mathematics. We have also created quizzes for you to test your knowledge and identify areas you may need more attention and focus on. We hope that you take advantage of these learning modules.
Math HeadStart provides you access to notes, videos, practice questions and quizzes on a variety of topics such as Numerical Computations, Fractions, Decimals, Percent, Algebra, Geometry and Graphing. If you are enrolling in a business program, we recommend the Humber Math HeadStart for Business Mathematics.
