Math 95 (Section 1501) and Math 96 (Section 1503): These are hybrid computer based classes in which instruction and assignments are provided using the ALEKS software. Students are expected to attend class at our scheduled time and must be able to access a computer with internet access outside of class that meets ALEKS system requirements in order to complete the course work. Students will need the ALEKS Users Guide, available at the TMCC bookstore or on the ALEKS site when signing up with ALEKS. Students will sign-up with ALEKS during our first class meeting. If you've purchased your ALEKS Users Guide at the TMCC bookstore, please don't open it until after our first class meeting. The bookstore will not accept returns if the ALEKS User Guide has been opened. Students will need an Access Code (from the ALEKS Users Guide) and a Course Code (given in class during our first class meeting) to register with ALEKS.
