Online Tutoring
For online tutoring, please send questions to sdcity.math.center@gmail.com. Faculty may forward student’s “Ask my Instructor” emails to this address if they choose to do so. We will in turn try to answer the questions via video, or if a problem is easy enough and doesn’t merit generating a video, we’ll include a scan of something written out.



COUNSELOR INFORMATION 

Math 15 courses can be used to challenge a prerequisite, but only in conjunction with passing a standard Math Department final exam. Note that a student who chooses this class will not receive academic credit for the course that they bypass.

  1. A student who does not have the required M30 level to enter a Math 46 course can challenge the prerequisite by earning a grade of PASS in Math 15A and passing the Math Department Math 38 final exam with a score of 70% or higher.
    A student who does not have the required M40 level to enter a Math 96 course can challenge the prerequisite by earning a grade of PASS in Math 15B and passing the Math Department Math 46 final exam with a score of 70% or higher.
    A student who does not have the required M50 level to enter a Math 100 level course can challenge the prerequisite by earning a grade of PASS in Math 15C and passing the Math Department Math 96 final exam with a score of 70% or higher.
  2. Students tend to be overly optimistic on their ability to quickly complete Math 15C. Historically, students have had very good success completing Math 15A, mixed results completing Math 15B, and very poor results completing Math 15C. So, advise any students wanting to take Math 15C that they will need to treat it like a full five-unit course, working a minimum of 10 to 15 hours per week to make reasonable progress.
  3. The Math 15 courses each contain topics from the prerequisite course as well as the current course topics. That is, the Math 15A course contains both Math 34 and 38 topics, Math 15B contains Math 38 and 46 topics, Math 15C contains Math 46 and 96 topics. 
  4. So far, most of the students who completed Math 15 courses have passed the Department Final with 70% or more. So, the Math 15 courses prepare students well for the final exam.
  5. Another great use of the Math 15 refresher courses is to prepare students for the campus placement exam.
