Supplemental Instruction at DVC

Supplemental instruction is a peer-led learning environment designed and proven to enhance your performance in some of our campus’s most challenging science and math courses. The program holds voluntary, free support workshops to help you build your confidence in problem solving and improve your conceptual understanding of the material covered in your course. Peer facilitators coordinate with science and math faculty to tailor the weekly sessions to the topics being discussed in your class that week and will highlight common challenges and reinforce key themes to help you succeed. You are free to join as many sessions as your schedule permits. Please join us on Fridays to jumpstart your studies! See the schedule below for times and locations.

All sections of the following courses are supported by an SI workshop

  • BIOSC 130 – Principles of Cellular and Molecular Biology
  • CHEM 108 – Introductory Chemistry 
  • CHEM 120 – General Chemistry I
  • CHEM 121 – General Chemistry II
  • COMSC 110 – Introduction to Programming
  • MATH 191 – Pre-Calculus
  • MATH 192 – Analytical Geometry and Calculus I
  • MATH 193 – Analytical Geometry and Calculus II
  • PHYS 129 – Introduction to Physics for Engineers
