Adjunct Course: Math 98 for Math 53

SLC Math 53 Adjunct Intake/Sign-Up Form

Math 98 is a 1-unit course taken in conjunction with Math 53. The adjunct instructor integrates academic content from the lecture with study strategies techniques in order to improve problem-solving skills, develop self-management and study-strategies, and promote academic success.


Students must enroll or be on the waiting list of the lecture that the adjunct course is supporting. To add the adjunct course, attend the first class meeting of the adjunct course, and the instructor will distribute the course control number (CCN). Students can then enroll in the adjunct course through Telebears. Enrollment is limited to 25 students, so students that attend the first session are more likely to get into the adjunct course.  If you cannot attend the first session, attend an hour-long session in Math/Stat Drop-In at the SLC César Chávez Student Center. These sessions start Wednesday 1/18 and begin 10 minutes after the hour every hour from 10am-5pm.

Study Groups 

The study group leader facilitates students working together on worksheets and discussing material in small groups. The study group leader also summarizes key concepts, reviews for the lecture exams, and addresses individual questions during office hours.

Study Groups begin the 3rd week of instruction and continue until the end of instruction. Just attend any session and add your name and SID to the sign-in sheet. Students may attend the study group at any point in the semester.

If you cannot attend the study group for your lecture, you may attend the other study group, but note that the pacing and emphasis will be geared towards the professor the study group is assigned to.

Drop-In

Students can get help on their homework assignments on a first-come, first-served basis. Drop-In tutoring is designed for students who need specific help on a given concept or problem set. Tutors assist students by providing a conceptual framework and creating parallel problems to the homework questions that students bring. Typically there are 10 to 15 tutors working per hour, and we work with students individually or in small groups. Drop-In Tutoring is a great way to meet and work with fellow students as well as to get assistance with your coursework.

Drop-In Tutoring starts the 3rd week of instruction and continues until the end of instruction. Students sign up at the Math/Stat Drop-In computer in the Cesar Chavez Atrium near room 103, Our hours are Mon-Thu 10-4.
