Math Modules

We are also your resource for accessing Math Modules, an alternative to taking MTH 101 in a classroom setting.  Math Modules allow you to proceed at your own pace, working on course material both at home and in the Math Center.

Visit the Math Modules page for more information.

Preparation for Math Placement Tests

CLC has two types of math requirements:

  • Basic Algebra Readiness
  • and prerequisites for individual math courses

Basic Algebra Readiness is a general requirement for enrolling in courses in math, science and technology fields. College-level math courses also have additional course-specific prerequisites. You can satisfy Basic Algebra Readiness and math course prerequisites in a number of ways, including taking the college’s math placement test. The Math Center offers several resources to help you prepare for the math placement test.

Online Resources

We’ve compiled a number of online resources links to help you brush up on your math skills. Use these as study aids, and come in to the Math Center for help with any questions.

Math Center Staff

When you visit the Math & Science Center, you'll find peer tutors and "specialist" tutors. Peer tutors are CLC students who have been recommended by an instructor to tutor specific courses. Specialist tutors are part-time instructors or community members who have earned a bachelor's or higher degree.
