new and improved way of teaching- Island TIME: Transition Into
Math Excellence.
Students will benefit from a personalized learning experience that
combines face-to-face instruction with easy-to-use technology. The
goals of FKCC’s new program are to ensure students successfully
complete developmental math courses, and are then prepared and
confident for the next step toward a bright future.

Island TIME courses will take place in the new, state-of-theart Student Success Center. Students will attend class in one
portion of the Student Success Center, and then complete
coursework in the adjoining computer lab. The Student
