Math for College & Work Tue/Thu

Free

with Vanessa Richards, Ellsworth Adult Education

Calendar Jan 7, 2020 at 10:30 am, runs for 20 weeks

If you don't use it, you lose it! This is most notably true about math. Most of us read and write almost every day, but how many of us find the common denominator of fractions regularly enough to make it stick in our brains? Work with our math teacher to change your perspective on math, eliminate your negative feelings and anxiety, and receive direct and targeted instruction. You'll use technology to practice the skills you learn directly from your teacher and other learning resources. Vanessa Richards has 19 years of experience teaching all levels of math, and has been dubbed the "Math Therapist." Upon successful completion of this course, students will earn one high school diploma credit (if needed).

Please contact Ellsworth Adult Education at 664-7110 or adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org to make an appointment with our student advisor before registering for this class.
