Note for Math 351 Pre-Algebra or Math 251 Beginning Algebra Students!
Hello. This is Mr. Perez. If you are enrolled in my Math 351 or Math 251 course, I encourage you to come visit me in my office (SM-345) preferably before classes begin or during the first week of instruction. I enjoy meeting with students individually to discuss issues in regards to taking math. For those of you who have not taken math for sometime and/or are new to the college, I highly recommend you come and visit. Conversations of this nature help me to better understand your issues and concerns and gives me ideas on how to improve my instruction.

The website address below will get you to the "Algebra2go" website where you can access lecture notes, worksheets, videos, and some other innovative learning tools.
