Hawaiʻi Community College–Pālamanui is hosting a free workshop designed to help anyone who has trouble conquering the “math monster.”
Many current or incoming students have a fear of math that prevents them from pursuing and attaining the degree or certificate they are seeking. The workshop, Slaying the Mental Math Monster for Good, is designed to help them overcome their fears and frustrations and get on the path to success.
At the workshop, participants will learn valuable tips to overcome their negative math mindset; about the new, condensed math pathways at Hawaiʻi Community College–Pālamanui that are now in place and the valuable resources to help them succeed in math (both in the compass/accuplacer placement testing and in math classes).
Slaying the Mental Math Monster for Good workshops are free and open to the public. The classes will be held at the Hawaiʻi Community College–Pālamanui Library Learning Center computer lab on:
- Monday, November 28, 5:30–6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, November 30, 5:30–6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, December 7, 5:30–6:30 p.m.
- Thursday, December 15, 5:30–6:30 p.m.
The workshop is hosted and led by University Center, West Hawaiʻi Educational Specialist Carrie Kuwada Phipps, along with Hawaiʻi Community College–Pālamanui math student peer tutor Brad Levandowski.
