Bakersfield College

Math Learning Center

Looking to become a BSTEM major, OR just need any transfer-level math class?

Do you want to get credit for the math you know, and start right where you need to be?

Do you have a schedule that requires you to not come to campus for many weeks in a row?

Maybe you just need help with some background math skills, to support your current math class?

Consider enrolling in a Self-Paced, HYBRID course in the Math Learning Center!


Self-Paced Hybrid Courses

Math B27 College Algebra (4 units)

This course will be available to any student needing a transfer-level math class and will also serve as a bridge to BSTEM degree programs. The Math B27 class is taught using a combination of the Internet-based program ALEKS and one-on-one help from instructors in the Math Learning Center. Students are required to attend a mandatory orientation via a Virtual ConferZoom meeting. Students who are requesting extensions or reinstatements are required to meet with an instructor in the Math Learning Center. Students are required to complete assessments in the Math Learning Center, roughly every 3 weeks.

Math Jam - Math Skill Building B99NC (Non Credit, Repeatable)

This is NOT a transfer-level course, nor is it for credit. The assumption is you are taking this, in order to be successful in a different, for-credit course. Students receive "walk-in" instruction, during our in-person and online business hours, and get help directly from an instructor. There is also the option to use a self-paced, online, adaptive learning software to support this.

Preferred Methods of Communication

  1. Physically come into the Math Learning Center, CSS 140, during our in-person hours and work directly with faculty and staff.
  2. Contact the Math Learning Center Virtually by joining our current ConferZoom meeting of the week. Once you join the meeting you can "raise your hand" or "unmute" yourself to speak with the "Host" or you can type a message in the "chat box". The links will be in your Canvas or email, but if not please see step 3.
  3. You can also email us at mathlc1@bakersfieldcollege.edu, if you do not need an immediate response or if you do not have the links to our ConferZoom meetings.

All students enrolled in the hybrid math courses must sign into Inside BC → Tools → Canvas → Courses → Homepage and join the link for the daily ConferZoom meeting.

"Walk-in" Tutoring

If you are taking any Math class in Bakersfield College and need additional help, come into the Math Learning Center, CSS 140.

If you are interested in "walk-in" tutoring, but cannot physically come in, then email mathlc1@bakersfieldcollege.edu to receive the links to the ConferZoom meetings.

If you are dropped

If you are dropped, you can use your "no questions asked" reinstate by contacting the Math Learning Center through mathlc1@bakersfieldcollege.edu. You will have to complete 30 minutes of tutoring, be current in your milestone and the required hours. Then, we will send you a form to be sent to Admissions and Records (bcadmission@kccd.edu) in order to reinstate.

While dropped, still work on the ALEKS program; put in as much time as your schedule allows. Any time you complete while dropped, will count towards your new total once you are reinstated.
