Modes of Instruction: What are A&B, X&Y and DE? Math Department SLOs |
**Non-Traditional Math X Lab.**The Math X Lab features a workbook delivery system in a self-paced mastery learning approach. The instructor and instructional assistant are resources and do not lecture. Each course is divided into two halves (called modules) to allow students more time to cover the material. Math X Lab courses are numbered Math 36X, 36Y, 55X, 55Y, 65X, 65Y, 71X, 71Y, 107X and 107Y.
**Traditional Half Lecture.**The Traditional Half Lecture courses feature an instructor who delivers the material via lecture, discussion, homework and tests. The math course is divided in half allowing students to learn at a slower pace. Half Lecture courses are numbered Math 55A, 55B, 65A and 65B.
**Traditional Lecture.**The Traditional Lecture courses feature an instructor who delivers the material via lecture, discussion, homework and tests. The instructor covers the entire course in one semester. Lecture courses are numbered Math 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20, 33, 34, 36, 38, 41, 42A, 42B, 44, 45, 55, 57, 65 and 106.
**On-Line.**An On-Line course is a distance education course delivered over the internet using web-based tutorial software. To take an on-line class, a student must have experience using an Internet browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer and must have daily access to a computer with an Internet connection and a CD-ROM drive. The instructor maintains a web-site containing course information uses e-mail, on-line chat rooms and threaded discussions to assist students taking the course. The only on-line courses currently available are Math 65 Elementary Algebra and Math 55 Intermediate Algebra.
Contact the staff in the Assessment Testing Office, 925.424.1475, for an appointment. At LPC we use the ACCUPlacer computerized testing system. The system will guide you to the appropriate testing choice to determine your placement into the appropriate math class. Your
assessment results will tell you the math courses in which you are eligible
to enroll. Please note that students may enroll in Basic Mathematics
(Math 106 or 107X) without taking an assessment test. It has been our
experience that the assessment process is generally quite accurate.
If you feel strongly that you have been placed in a course incorrectly,
see a Counselor about the prerequisite challenge process. |
