Welcome to the Laney College Math Department’s Home Page!


Course Modalities:

As the world emerges from pandemic restrictions, many of us are excited to return to the classroom! Most of our classes will be offered in Hybrid mode (a mix of in-class meetings and online instruction), some classes will be online only, and some classes will be face-to-face only – please check the course Notes in the online schedule carefully for the modality of instruction (Online Schedule). At this point there is no guarantee that face-to-face classes will be able to be recorded for “on demand” viewing (like some of us have gotten used to in the “Zoom era”), the safest assumption is that face-to-face classes will not be recorded, however you are welcome to contact the instructor at the listed email address.
