Department Description

One of the goals of Hibbing Community College's mathematics courses is to help students gain an understanding of and appreciation for mathematics as an essential tool for understanding not just mathematics itself, but other disciplines and the world. These courses will also aid in developing critical thinking skills which are essential for success in both academic and nonacademic endeavors.

Hibbing Community College offers a variety of mathematics courses including preparatory classes designed for those students who are not quite ready for college-level mathematics, as well as a variety of college level mathematics courses which satisfy two- or four-year degree requirements.
