  • Newest Catalog: See attachment at the end of the page Student Information located in the Side Bar

New Course: We are offering MATH 129 (Problem Solving Methods) this Fall 2012  which you may decide to offer as a substitute for MATH 130 (Intermediate Algebra).  We also hope to also offer MATH 151 as a sequel to MATH 129 in the spring which will replace MATH 150. We will use the book, Mathematics All Around by Thomas Pirnot which is used by UNM for their equivalent course. The course will emphasize the following:

1.  Problem solving
2.  Inductive and deductive reasoning
3.  Set theory and its use in classifying objects
4.  Logic (truth tables and conditionals)
5.  Study of numbers (integers, rationals, reals)
6.  Scientific notation
7.  Linear equations and their applications
8.  Consumer mathematics (interest, loans, amortization)
9.  Geometry (area, volume and perimeter)

Summer Semester: session has ended July 29th. Grades due Monday July 30th

The New Math Center is now located at the High Tech Building, it will provide tutoring for math related courses and allow students to have access to math labs. The director is Amy Flores.


Accelerated Courses in Math (Grant sponsored): Fundamentals of Mathematics & Basic Algebra; Intermediate Algebra

Accelerate is a five-school Northern New Mexico DOE-funded initiative for non-traditional students. Highlights of the program include free summer math courses, a dedicated tutor, an advocate to help students overcome barriers, personalized academic advising, career coaching, competitive fellowships leading to jobs, dedicated career fairs, and stipends to defray expenses. Participants are selected each spring, but any student can contact Career Technical Advisor Christy Dammen to attend Accelerate career tutorials and job fairs or receive assistance with resumes and job search (505-747-5443, cdammen@nnmc.edu).
