Attention is given to self-assessment (skills, interests, values, attitudes, motivational patterns), decision-making models, job and career research techniques (including electronic resources), and development of a personal action plan.

HD 111 Study Skills for Math Success

This course is for students who want to figure out how to enjoy math again, who want to really understand—not just memorize math formulas, who learn by doing, who want to talk through the math—not just listen to a lecture, who want to use their creativity and intuitions instead of stare at a computer screen, and who even want to relax and have fun doing math.  Can be taken alone or alongside a required math course.  In the latter case, students will be supported to understand and practice concepts from the other class.

MTH 199A  Excelling in Mathematics

This course is designed to complement developmental Mathematics courses but is beneficial for students enrolled in any Mathematics course. This course reshapes students' math attitudes, develops notetaking skills for lecture, emporium, and online delivery methods, addresses math and test anxiety and test-taking methods, fosters productive persistence, reflection, and self-efficacy, and includes the development of a personalized math success plan.
