Developmental Math

The Student Academic Success Center is the home of developmental mathematics at UNE including faculty offices and tutoring services. The developmental mathematics courses at UNE are designed to provide matriculated students with the skills necessary for success for college level mathematics and other classes with mathematics prerequisites.

While developmental mathematics courses certainly must focus on content and address mathematic deficiencies, faculty work with students to develop other “good-student” skills in order to prepare them for academic success. Attending class regularly, completing assignments thoroughly and on time, being an active learner, taking notes, etc. are all areas of focus. Classes meet two or three times each week and are limited to 20 or 24 students per section. Student Academic Success Center faculty use a variety of instructional techniques for students who have had less than positive experiences with math in the past.
