Melody Summers

My name is Melody Summers and I have been a professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Mt. SAC since 2006. 


I am so excited that you have decided to take Survey of College Mathematics with Support , College Algebra , or Trigonometry with Support ! Your success is important to me, so to help prepare you for the next part of your educational journey, I would like to share some information with you about my courses and classroom environments.


Click on one of my classes below to explore the structure and goals of each class.


      • Math 100 + Math 10A Spring 2023

        Online Class Search:
        ** This class will display a Building/Room number and a Meeting Time in the online class search, to indicate an in-person, on-campus class.


        Prerequisites: None


        Class Structure:
        This is a corequisite class, which means there is an extra 2 unit portion designed to give extra support in various aspects of the class. We will be using Canvas courses for both Math 100 and Math 10A.

        My class will be conducted on-campus, in a traditional classroom setting. All exams will be in the form of on-Campus traditional exams.


        A physical or digital copy of the textbook , MATH 100: Mathematical Ideas, 14th Ed., by Miller, is required. Homework assignments will be in the form of worksheets and textbook problems. Homework assignments will generally be due at the following class meeting, or by midnight if submitted online.


        Required Materials:

        Paper (Printer or Lined) (Strongly Recommended)

        Scientific Calculator (Strongly Recommended)


        Helpful Foundational Skills:

        Equations of Lines
        Solving Linear Equations
        Properties of Quadratic Equations

      • Math 150 + Math 15 Spring 2023

        Online Class Search:
        ** This class will display as "Online" with a Meeting Time, and as "Web" on a separate line in the online class search, to indicate a fully online class that has both a synchronous component (scheduled class meetings via Zoom) and an asynchronous component (independent work).


        Prerequisites: None


        Class Structure:
        This is a corequisite class, which means there is an extra 2 unit portion designed to give extra support in various aspects of the class. We will be using Canvas courses for both Math 150 and Math 15.

        My class is a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning, which means we will meet on Zoom on Tuesday or Thursday depending on the section, and you will work independently the rest of the week. You are expected to participate on Zoom via Zoom chat and speaking. Course materials, including professor's lecture videos, will be provided on Canvas by midnight on Sundays. The exams will be in the form of PDF uploads, and will be conducted on Zoom during class time.


        A physical or digital copy of the textbook , MATH 150: Trigonometry, 12th Ed., Lial, is required. Homework assignments will be in the form of worksheets and textbook problems, and will generally be due by midnight of the Zoom session that addresses them. Assignments and due dates will be released by midnight on Sundays.
