Overcoming Math Anxiety

“Through the Associate of Science program at Colorado Mountain College, my mind was opened to the incredible wonder of science as a way to deeply explore the natural world that I had always loved. With care and gentleness, I was nurtured past my math anxiety and challenged to discover and develop my passion, my skills, and my confidence.”
