Some of you may benefit from looking at the Learning Communities being offered this Fall. Learning communities are simply a combination of two or more courses designed to maximize student engagement. When you see a familiar face in more than one class, you might be more apt to form study groups, which can be an effective method of learning course material. In addition, Learning Assistants will be a part of many of the Learning Communities. Learning Assistants provide free additional tutoring outside of class.
Fall learning communities include various class combinations such as: Math 170 and Chemistry 111 (75860 and 75855) or Math 175 and Physics 211 (75854). For those of you switching to the Fall 2012 catalog there is a University Foundation 100 combination with Engineering 120 (75857).
For students that have taken higher level math courses than the pre-requisite listed you may need a permission number. Engineering students should contact Diana Garza, 426-2685 for an override form; other majors can contact Kimber Shaw at Academic Advising & Enhancement, 426-4049.
