Small interactive discussion and problem solving sessions for
Math 2 & Math 3

Students enrolled in Math 2 & Math 3 are encouraged to sign-up for these sessions. Evaluation data indicates that students who have found these sessions most helpful are students who are anxious about their mathematics preparation, prefer to engage in-group learning, and score below the mid-point of the required range on the math placement exam. Students who take this advice have passed Math 2 & Math 3 at a higher rate than expected. 


Intensive Writing Support for LALS 100A

Students enrolled in Latin American and Latino Studies 100A have the opportunity to enroll in a co-requisite, 2-unit, writing intensive course. Students who choose to enroll in this course are required to meet with an undergraduate Learning/Writing Assistant for one hour each week and to produce drafts and rewrites of their course-assigned papers.  In winter 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 students who participated in the writing support for LALS 100A received more A’s and B’s than students who did not participate in the writing support.
