Profile

My name is Jennifer Caldwell and I look forward to being your math instructor this semester.  I have been teaching math for almost 20 years and I have a true passion for helping my students reach their goals.

  • I believe that anybody can learn anything with the proper attitude, motivation, and environment.
  • I want my students to know that I am personally invested in their success; I deeply care that they learn and understand.
  • A class day is wasted if you have not learned something new and if we haven’t smiled and laughed together.

Although you may view your math class as simply a stepping-stone towards your degree, I hope you will come to realize that math is applicable in almost every aspect of our lives.  If you keep an open mind and are willing to participate, you will be pleasantly surprised at how your mathematical abilities improve.  

I can't wait to meet you in class!

Classes Taught

Spring 2022

MAT156 College Algebra/Functions with Review 6 Credits
Analysis and interpretation of the behavior and nature of functions including linear, quadratic, higher-order polynomials, rational, exponential, logarithmic, power, absolute value, and piecewise-defined functions; systems of equations, using multiple methods including matrices, and modeling and solving real world problems, along with review of intermediate algebra, as needed.
Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in each of the following: (MAT055, MAT056, and MAT057), OR MAT09+ or MAT114 or MAT115, OR an appropriate district placement for MAT120 or MAT121 or MAT122, OR permission of Department or Division Chair.
It is highly encouraged that you attend one of the FREE MCC Math Boot Camps that occur prior to the beginning of the semester.

Spring Flex Start 2022

MAT091 Introductory Algebra 4 Credits
Emphasis on meanings related to variable, equality, inequality, equivalence. The use of additive and multiplicative reasoning in solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable. Validation of solution(s) through a reasonable mathematical defense. Transfer and apply knowledge through a process of sense making and reasonableness in mathematical problems and practical application situations. Recognize patterns and organize data to represent situations where output is related to input. Understand the concept of function and be able to represent functions in multiple ways, including tables, algebraic rules, graphs and contextual situations, and make connections among these representations. Read, represent, and interpret linear function relationships numerically, analytically, graphically and verbally and connect the different representations. Model and solve real world problems involving constant rate of change.
Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in each of the following courses: (MAT051, MAT052, and MAT053), OR a grade of C or better in MAT08+, OR an appropriate district placement.
It is highly encouraged that you attend one of the FREE MCC Math Boot Camps that occur prior to the beginning of the semester.
