Wouldn't you like to take your math classes in the warmth of your own house?
The following math classes are offered online:
- Math 350 A-H Modules
- Math 351: Prealgebra
- Math 353: Elementary Algebra
- Math 253: Intermediate Algebra
- Math 10: Introductory Statistics
Online classes are NOT for every student. To succeed in an online class, a student
should not find math a difficult subject
should be able to use a computer effectively and efficiently
must have access to a computer with high-speed internet connection
should be able to devote a set number of hours per week to do the course work on a regular basis (at least 2 hours per week for each course unit)
must be able to work independently
must be self motivated
must be able to do course work without the help of an instructor
should not have the tendency to procrastinate
If you meet all of the above requirements, you might be a good candidate to take an online class. Otherwise, taking a traditional class would be better for you.
