In this changing world, those who understand and can do mathematics will have significantly enhanced opportunities and options for shaping their futures. . . . All students should have the opportunity and the support necessary to learn significant mathematics with depth and understanding.
NCTM (2000, p. 50)
Mathematics can open many doors but can be a challenge. The mathematics division at CVCC recognizes this and is committed to providing quality instruction in a supportive learning environment. Highly-qualified full-time and adjunct faculty, as well as math tutoring center personnel, devote much time and energy, both in the classroom and out, to help students make sense of and even enjoy mathematics.
In fact, the college’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Factor in your Future: Making Math a Priority from the Start has been focused on improving student learning and success in math. The QEP plan includes offering free workshops to boost math skills and confidence On Board Math Prep, designing math classes to maximize learning MyMathLab, and providing free math tutorial services Math Tutoring Center. Through these initiatives, CVCC hopes students succeed in math and achieve their goals.
Besides drop-in tutoring, the MTC reaches out to students in several other ways. The Lunch and Learn Series consists of workshops targeting factors that impact student success in math. These are held once a month and pizza is provided. On Board Math Prep is a free, individualized program, offered before the start of a semester, to help students gain the math skills and confidence necessary to succeed in their math class. On Board begins around midterm of each semester and ends on the first day of the following semester. Math Reviews are held in the MTC near the end of the semester to help students prepare for final exams.
Students should visit the MTC early and often!

MTH 098 Math Reviews
At the end of the semester, the Math Tutoring Center (MTC) holds FREE math reviews for students in MTH 098. With additional help reviewing the math concepts and skills, we are hoping students will be able to pass the course and be prepared for the next one. The MTC also holds MTH 098 Math Reviews before the start of the next semester to help students prepare for taking or retaking the placement test. During each session, tutors answer questions from the MTH 098 Final Exam Review.
