Yes, some. Few unfortunately. There seems to be a time limit.

Yeah, I guess, pretty close. I would do away, altogether, with remedial math as we know it. It simply doesn't work and wastes time and resources. In its place, for students that want to get back into the game, I would start at the beginning. Some will progress quickly through the preliminaries. But you have to establish where each of them are.
