Fundamentals of Statistics
with Peg Junge
This course (approximately 10 classes) is designed to prepare students for an introductory statistics course. College statistics is often difficult for students because the subject matter is unlike mathematics encountered in high school. The goal of this class is to provide the necessary foundational concepts for success at the college level. We begin by reviewing basic decimal and percents skills. Subsequent topics include data collecting considerations, organizing data and representing it visually, comparing data in terms of range, mean, variance, and standard deviation, and basic probability topics. Instruction can be provided in-person or on Zoom.

Mathematics for College
with Peg Junge
This class is for students who want to review math skills before taking a math placement test or enrolling in a college math course. The class provides one-on-one instruction where the instructor and student decide together on which type of math to work on. Some students may need to rebuild foundational math skills and concepts before moving on to more advanced math. Others may want to brush up on their Algebra skills. The class objectives will be decided during the registration process. Students may continue to meet with the instructor for tutoring help during their college mathematics course, if desired. This course has rolling admission and the day and time of meetings is flexible.
