You may use my office hours for some additional work on these background areas either as individuals or in small groups. My office time is also available to discuss routine problems from homework after they have been discussed in class, reality check quizzes, as well as using technology. Representatives from groups with questions about the Problem of the Week are also welcome.
You may consider registering for Math 99(sections 5 or 6  42097
or 42527) Tutoring for Math 115. This is a 2 unit, credit/no credit "course"
that provides generous tutorial assistance paid for by your registration.
If you can afford the units, this is a good way to get help on specific
problems.
Regular use of my time outside of class or Math 99 should be especially
useful for students having difficulty with the work and wishing to improve
through a steady approach to mastering skills and concepts.
