Tutoring Updates

AATC Summer Sessions: Individual appointments with tutors and specialists, workshops, and drop-in will all take place online on Zoom.
The Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion has created a website with Resources for Racial Trauma.

Summer Sessions

Students have two options for academic support through AATC this summer. OPTION 1 - Book an individual appointment with a Tutor through OASIS. OPTION 2 - Join a Zoom drop-in session or office hours with a Math Specialist. Click on the tabs above to learn more and access schedules.

  • Courses We Teach
  • Math Specialists and graduate students teach sections of MATB, MATD, and workload Precalculus. These courses each carry 3 workload units which to not count toward graduation, but do count toward full-time status and minimum progress.

    MATB - offered Fall only

    Topics covered include:properties of numbers, exponents and radicals, graphing coordinates, linear equations and inequalities, graphing lines, properties of polynomials, factoring polynomials. A skills assessment in given on the first day of class to determine areas for focus.

    MATD - offered Fall and Winter if sufficient enrollment

    Topics covered include:polynomials, systems of linear and nonlinear equations, exponent rules, rational exponents, radical equations, factoring, rational expressions, linear and non-linear inequalities, absolute values, the coordinate plane, graphing lines and parabolas, and a brief introduction to exponential and logarithmic functions (exponentials and logarithmic functions are covered more in-depth in precalculus).

    WLD910 (workload precalculus) - offered Fall, Winter, and Spring if sufficient enrollment

    Topics covered include:graphing lines, parabolas, and circles; optimization; exponents, radicals, logarithms, and log laws; simple and compound interest; exponential growth and decay; graphing absolute value, logarithmic, and exponential functions; piecewise functions; graphing polynomials and rational functions; composition of functions and inverses; difference quotients; domain and range; and trigonometry, including right triangle applications, the unit circle, radian and degree measures, trig graphs, trig identities, and simple trig equations.


    There are no set cutoffs for placement into MATB, MATD, and WLD910. Instead, we have developed a flowchart (below) to help get students in the right part of their path toward success in Calculus.


    MATB and MATD are searchable in Schedule Builder. For other Schedules and CRNs please see Pre and Co classes tab below. For questions, contact Sara Hawkes.

Fall 2020 | MAT Pre and Co-classes and Workshops

The following courses are not searchable by name in Schedule Builder; search for the CNR. CO-17 courses will appear as "CO-16" in Schedule Builder.

Remote Instruction

AATC Specialists will be teaching all pre and co classes remotely for fall 2020. Times listed are for live/synchronous sessions. Students are encouraged to email the Specialist to add with a PTA if there are any scheduling conflicts with the live sessions.

All courses are graded with P/NP grading. MAT000B, MAT000D, WLD910, and WLD920 all carry 3 workload units, while all co-classes carry 1 workload unit. For questions about these classes or enrollment, please contact Sara Hawkes
