Students are encouraged to seek my help or get help from one another. There are also tutors in the MS building (the Math Foundations Tutoring Center) and the library, along with computer-assisted instruction available and videos within My Math Lab (Course Compass).
Class participation and active learning:
Often, you will find that your classmates have different perspectives than you and can offer tips or techniques that can enhance your learning and understanding. You have a lot to learn from the instructor, but you also have a lot to learn from each other! You can expect to work in groups with your peers quite often in this course, and you are expected to be a contributing member to your group. You should come to class prepared to participate. Remember, none of us is as smart as all of us! Everyone has something to offer. If you keep an open mind and willingness to participate, you will be pleasantly surprised at how your mathematical abilities improve.
Mesa Community College is committed to the success of all our students. Numerous campus support services are available throughout your academic journey to assist you in achieving your educational goals. MCC has adopted an Early Alert Referral System (EARS) as part of a student success initiative to aid students in their educational pursuits. Faculty and Staff participate by alerting and referring students to campus services for added support. Students may receive a follow up call from various campus services as a result of being referred to EARS. Students are encouraged to participate, but these services are optional.
Early Alert Web Page with Campus Resource Information can be located at: http://www.mesacc.edu/students/ears or at the “Early Alert” selection at the mymcc link from MCC’s home page.
If you have any disabilities which may hinder your learning the material presented in this class, please contact Disability and Resources Services (DRS) and complete the appropriate forms as soon as possible, along with letting the instructor know immediately after class. Everything reasonably possible will be done to help you be successful in this class.
