Hello Mountie Math Students!


I am so excited that you have decided to take Elementary Statistics with Support or Calculus and Analytic Geometry 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 110 + Math 11 Spring 2023

        Online Class Search:
        ** This class will display a Building/Room number and a Meeting Time in the online class search. It will also display as "Web" on a separate line to indicate a hybrid class that meets on-campus and has an asynchronous online 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 110 and Math 11.

        My class is an asynchronous hybrid, which means we will meet on-campus on Tuesdays and you will work independently the rest of the week. All exams will be conducted on-campus, in a traditional classroom setting. Course materials, including lecture notes and professor's lecture videos, will be provided on Canvas.


        Access to the textbook , MATH 110/110H: Elementary Statistics, 4th Ed., by Navidi, Monk, is optional. Free access to StatDisk is also required. Homework assignments will be in the form of discussion threads, computer projects, worksheets, take-home quizzes (not proctored / timed), and groupwork. Homework assignments will generally be due on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge that Mt. SAC is geographically situated on the traditional lands of the native, indigenous peoples whose land was taken from them. I ask you to join me in acknowledging their community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. May we strive to honor the land and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on-campus on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
