# Math 106-Section 11

## MTuWThF 3:10-4:00, Webster 11

## Dr. Sandy Cooper

First of all, welcome to my class! I will work very hard to help you be successful and, in return, I expect you to work harder than you've ever worked before. My goal is to help each of you build a solid foundation in College Algebra upon which your success in later math and science classes will be built. The skills you master here will make all your work from this point forward much easier.
