Wisdom for Math Classes

  • Don’t wait to enroll in math classes. Get started now! 
  • If math is tough for you, don’t overload your school and work schedule while taking a math course. You’ll need time outside of class to attend lab and do homework.
  • Do your homework. Doing math every day rather than cramming before a test will get you better results every time! And, you can always do more homework than your professor assigns for extra practice.
  • If you need accommodations (interpreter, wheelchair access, etc.) contact the Access Office.
  • Take advantage of the Readiness Center in CCC 126 for any advising questions.
  • Take advantage of the free Math Tutoring opportunities in Juniper Hall 308 and 316.
  • Have back up plans in place. If your car has a flat tire how will you get to class? (Get a few classmates’ phone numbers and build a network of support.)
  • Read the Math Bill of Rights.
