Math HeadStart Program

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. If you are enrolling in a technology program, we recommend the Humber Math HeadStart for Technical Mathematics.

Humber Math HeadStart is available to you through the Instruction Delivery & Assessment System (IDEAS) platform, which you can access online for free, so it is simple and easy for you to practice math when you want. Current Humber students can get math support at the Math Centre.
