Math Academy

The Programs

Math Academy and Math Plus are programs specifically designed to support student learning and to improve student success rates in math.

This is to be accomplished by attaching labs to each of the math courses.  These labs are designed to enhance student understanding, promote study skills, and provide assistance with homework. The goal is to enable students to successfully complete the courses in a community environment that supports every aspect of student learning. These labs are provided at no cost to the student by the Clark College Retention Committee. Due to this generous gift, it is a tremendous privilege to be a part of this program so all students participating in the program will be required to sign a commitment of dedication to hard work, faithful attendance, and consistent participation.

Why Join Math Academy?

“Math Academy has been a wonderful experience. I never thought I would enjoy learning and doing math, but with Math Academy that has become possible. I am now very confident with math. The Math Academy gives you extra time to understand what you’re being taught. I will miss it when I’m done.” Alvena

 “The Math Academy has helped me overcome my fear of math. I used to avoid math because I never did well and hardly understood anything math related. Both instructors have made math interesting and even fun.

“I am looking forward to next quarter, and I can honestly say that I have never looked forward to math until Math Academy. I will miss math when it’s over.” Ceirra
