Jefferson Counts

For many students just the thought of math class makes them worry.

  • Will I understand it?
  • Can I pass the class?
  • Why do I need math anyway? 

But of course, math is an integral part of everyday life and a critical skill in many of the professions Jefferson students will enter. So the college has embarked on a five-year process to change the way students think about math and the way some math classes are taught. It is a program known as Jefferson Counts and it is JCTC's Quality Enhancement Plan.

Jefferson Counts will expose students to why math is important to learn, help ease their anxiety about taking math classes and improve the learning experience. The goal is for students to succeed in their math courses and in related classes and programs.

This Jefferson Counts page provides documents that outline the program for faculty and staff and others who are interested and it provides math resources for students.
