John Jensen
Faculty Chair, Mathematics
Rio Salado College
Statement:  For many students beginning their studies in community college, mathematics poses a daunting challenge. Taking placement tests, mastering technologies that are unfamiliar, and, not least, learning or re-learning the content in the course are obstacles that they must overcome to be successful. Our job should be not only to provide learning opportunities in mathematics, but also to help students navigate the sometimes complex and frightening pathways to success. Our mission should be to replace mystery with mastery.
