Need a Math Class?

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

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

Consider enrolling in a Self-Paced, HYBRID course in the Math Lab!  You can even complete two classes in one semester!!!

Self-Paced Hybrid Courses

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

Classes are taught using a combination of the Internet-based program ALEKS, one-on-one help from instructors in the Math Learning Center, and group study sessions with SI (Supplemental Instruction) Leaders.  Interested students may go to ALEKS for a free 24-hour trial of the Internet-based program.

Walk-in Tutoring

If you are taking any Math B60 or B70 class on campus and need additional help, come into the Math Learning Center 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 Learning Center in person. You will have to fill out a reinstate form and complete 30 minutes of tutoring, current in your milestone and the required hours. Then, we will give you a form to take to Admissions and Records in order to reinstate. Plan on arriving at least two hours before we close in order to complete the transaction in one trip, to be sure to get to Admissions and Records before they close.

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.

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