Mathematics Department at RRCC

Pandemic Course Offerings

The Mathematics Department has both online and remote options. See the main RRCC webpage for general definitions of these formats.

Our online programming is similar to previous semesters with learning being asynchronous with fixed due dates. This format is ideal for those juggling many new responsibilities during the pandemic. These courses are charged the online tuition rate. 

Our remote programming is similar to what our face to face programming has been in previous semesters. There are times listed on the schedule and during those times, you will be interacting remotely live with your instructor and classmates. This synchronous time will consist of much the same of what was offered in our regular face to face programming - there will be answering of questions, delivering lectures on new material, working with colleagues on problems, etc. This format is the best option during pandemic times for those that typically prefer face to face classes. We all stay safe, but you get the same interaction you want in your math classes. These courses are charged the on-campus tuition rate (the rate for typically face to face classes).

We also have tutoring options available. TutorMe is a remote tutoring option that is available 24 hours per day that you can access through D2L. We also have remote study groups for select classes that you can drop into offered by the tutors of RRCC that you've known and worked with in semesters past. If the campus is open, there is also one on one tutoring available at the Lakewood campus by appointment only. More details to come in your class. 

We hope to "see" you in one of our courses!
