Need a Math Class?

Struggling in a math class that is going too fast or too slow?

Ready for a fresh start?

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


We offer:

  • Math B60 Beginning Algebra (5 units)
  • Math B70 Intermediate Algebra (5 units)

Classes are taught using a combination of the Internet-based program ALEKS and one-on-one help from instructors in the Math Lab. You can work at your own pace and take a little more than one semester to finish a course. Interested students may go to http://www.aleks.com for a free 24-hour trial of the Internet-based program.

We also offer walk-in tutoring!

If you are taking any Math B60 or B70 class on campus and need additional help, come into the Math Lab for tutoring - no appointment needed!

If you are dropped

If you are dropped, you can use your "no questions asked" reinstate by coming into the Math Lab in person. You will have to fill out a reinstate form and complete 30 minutes of tutoring, and the required hours. Then, we will give you a form to take to Admissions and Records in order to reinstate. Plan on arriving by 5:00 pm Monday - Thursday and by 11:30 am on Fridays(closed during summer semester) in order to complete the transaction in one trip, to be sure to get to Admissions and Records before they close.

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

As always, call us at (661) 395-4530 if you have additional questions.
