Non-Traditional Ways to Take Math Courses

A word about Mathematics Courses – alternatives to the traditional

The Mathematics Department offers several alternatives to the traditional classroom setting, including

  • online classes (no face-to-face class meetings),
  • hybrid classes (one face-to-face meeting per week),
  • and COMPUTR classes that meet in a mediated classroom.

SUNY Learning Network Courses (online courses)
Online courses offer the opportunity to attend classes and complete your work at your own convenience any time and any place using the internet.  In an online course the instructor and students are connected to each other through a computer network.  There are no face-to-face meetings. Please contact the instructor for information.

Hybrid Courses
Hybrid courses combine face-to-face classroom instruction with online learning activities. You will attend one class on campus for one fifty- or eighty-minute session per week and then complete additional coursework online.

COMPUTR classes
Inclasses designated by COMPUTR on the schedule, each student is the center of instruction. The instructor serves as a teacher/tutor/mentor/coach/advisor/facilitator of instruction who works with individuals, small groups, and sometimes the entire class.  These classes are held in the Mathematics Department’s mediated classroom (11-202), a room housing a lecture area as well as 30 computer stations.  Students are expected to spend several hours each week outside of class working online using MyMathLab for assignments and quizzes.
