Waterloo Ready - Math 

What to expect from Waterloo Ready - Mathematics

Welcome to Mathematics at the University of Waterloo. Before you start classes in September, we want to help you get up to speed and feel confident that you’ve got the skills you need to be successful in your first year. Waterloo Ready - Math provides the tools and resources to help you do just that.

LEARN is the University of Waterloo's online learning management system. This is where many of your instructors will organize course materials, activities and assessments. 

As part of Waterloo Ready, we've created a LEARN module to help you prepare for September. We've designed it to help you learn about resources and to build your skills for Math at Waterloo. Check back as there'll be new content each week from the end of June to mid-August. While participating, you'll also get familiar with the platform you'll use for most of your online courses. Get a head start for September by signing in today!

Through the Waterloo Ready - Math LEARN modules and discussion boards, you'll discover:

  • How to use our online systems (LEARN, Quest, Portal and more),

  • The differences between high school and university,

  • Routines and best practices for learning,

  • How to prepare for September and what to expect in the first six weeks,

  • Campus resources and supports,

  • Faculty-specific hacks for success,

  • Academic preparedness, and

  • How to get involved.

Sign in to LEARN with your username@uwaterloo.ca email address and WatIAM password. You'll see Waterloo Ready - Math in your LEARN Courses and Communities. If you haven't set up your official uwaterloo.ca email through Office 365, you'll need to do so before accessing LEARN.
