Course Information

A New Way to Take Math!

Housatonic Computer Lab Information

Self-Paced Studies

  • Do you feel comfortable with computers?
  • Are you self-motivated?
  • Do you ever walk out of your math class thinking the teacher is going way too FAST or too S-L-O-W?
  • Do you feel you just need a math refresher?
  • Do you struggle with fractions, percents and decimals?

If you answered YES to three or more of these questions, this is the right MATH CLASS for you!

Self-Paced Studies
... WHAT IS IT? 

  • A computer-based course that allows you to progress at your own pace.
  • In-class tests are given when YOU are ready, NOT when the "class" is ready.
  • Courses may be completed in LESS than one semester.
  • If you need more than one semester to complete the course, registration will be required each semester.
  • Self-Paced Studies teaches you mathematics in a step-by-step manner.
  • Instructors will facilitate, not lecture and will be available in the classroom to help answer questions.
  • At least one class period will be devoted to computer training.

HCC Self-Paced Studies Math Class Information

  • Classes are scheduled at several different times for your convenience.
  • In addition to scheduled class time, each week you are required to work on the Internet either at home or in HCC'S computer labs. 
  • An instructor and tutors will be available for help during class time.
  • You take tests in class when YOU are ready.
  • Instruction is computer based and you learn at YOUR own pace and level.
  • Courses offered are: MAT* E075, MAT* E095 and MAT* E137 

How Do I sign up?

Look for the math classes labeled Self-Paced in the Housatonic class schedule.

Self-Paced math is designed for:

  • Students who feel they already know the material and want a faster way to progress through their mathematics courses. 
  • Students who feel overwhelmed in their math class.
  • Students who don't like the pace of a traditional classroom.
  • Students who are self-motivated.
  • Students who like to work with computers.


  • You must attend every class to make progress.
  • 80% proficiency must be achieved to progress through the course.
  • Each class is limited to 20 students.
  • At-home Internet access is desirable but not necessary.
  • Personal headphones will be used in every class. Please bring your own.

Expectations for Student Use of Computers in Courses

Expectations for Student Use of Computers in Courses

Any Housatonic Community College course may require substantial computer based learning including use of the Internet, e-text books, instructional software, Blackboard, research data bases, online assignments, etc., for the completion of class assignments, homework, research and assessments.

Computer- based learning experiences may be used in place of or in addition to traditional lectures for some lessons. All students have access to computer laboratories in both Beacon Hall and Lafayette Hall. Computer access is also available in the college library.
