Our Focus

This webpage is created as a way for the math department to connect with our part-time faculty regarding the latest curriculum changes and provide support for those interested in implementing the online homework program into their courses.  Currently, we are focusing on providing support for MATH-80, MATH-81, and MATH-25 with emphasis on MATH-81 (Beginning Algebra).

Through Basic Skills Funding and the Student Success Committee's efforts, we are able to put this project together. Our focus will be the following:

  • List of most recent SLOs
  • Course outline showing topics to be covered
  • Suggested weekly schedule
  • Class syllabus template
  • Training for adaptation of online homework -MathXL program
  • Upcoming training events and meetings
