Academic Preparation Math

Developmental mathematics is offered through the Department of Developmental Education. The sequence of developmental mathematics courses consists of Basic Math, Basic Algebra I, Math Literacy for College Students, and Basic Algebra II. These courses are designed to prepare students for future course work in mathematics.

Our developmental mathematics courses are taught by a group of dedicated professional educators who strive to teach our students the basics of being successful in today’s academic world.

Among the mathematics skills taught in our classes, we emphasize good study skills, note-taking skills, test-taking techniques and we encourage appropriate instructor-student rapport.

We offer our developmental mathematics students diverse methods of instruction. Our students utilize our traditional classes, modularized, hybrid, and online sections, and Fusion courses that are paired with college-level math.

Our developmental students can take advantage of the college’s superior tutoring services through the Tutoring Center. NECC offers free tutoring on a drop-in basis both days, evenings, and Saturdays at both campus sites. Online tutoring services are also available.
