Mathematics Component
The goal of the Mathematics Component is to enhance and improve the mathematics skills of students so that they will be able to succeed in an entrylevel math course at the University. Through lectures, small group discussions, and lab settings, efforts are made to provide effective developmental instruction as well as help students become more independent learners as they shift from a productoriented and rulebased approach to a processoriented and conceptbased approach to solving problems. To prepare students for the collegelevel mathematics required to enter their chosen major fields, the Mathematics Component provides opportunities to:

Establish a strong foundation in mathematical skills

Improve math problemsolving capabilities

Reduce math anxiety

Analyze and selfassess computational skills

Understand the thinking process involved in problem solving
The courses for which the Mathematics Component provides support are:
