Course Descriptions

The placement into Developmental Math courses are dependent on the Accuplacer© Placement Test. Based on the math section of the placement test a score is obtained for Arithmetic and a separate score for Algebra. Based on these 2 scores students are placed into the following math classes.

To determine your placement refer to the Test Scores and Placement Chart available under the Placement tab located off of the Developmental Math Program Homepage. This chart describes what classes are needed based on the placement test results.

MAT-010AL Basic Mathematics Linked Support PDF

Basic Mathematics Linked Support is a computer assisted class designed to provide additional instructional reinforcement for students enrolled in linked sections of Basic Mathematics Course (MAT-011AL)

MAT-011AL Basic Mathematics Linked PDF

Basic Mathematics is a study of the fundamental operations of arithmetic, intended for students whose placement examination indicates a need for a review of arithmetic skills. Topics include computation with and applications using numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, percents, and integers. Additional instructional time is administered through a support class MAT-010AL, and must be taken together.

MAT-011 Basic Mathematics PDF

Basic Mathematics is a study of the fundamental operations of arithmetic, intended for students whose placement examination indicates a need for a review of arithmetic skills. Topics include computation with and applications using numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, percents, and integers.

MAT-012 Accelerated Basic Mathematics PDF

Basic Mathematics is a study of the fundamental operations of arithmetic, intended for students whose placement examination indicates a need for a review of arithmetic skills. Topics include computation with and applications using numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, percents, and integers. This class is intended for students who need a refresher course for Basic Mathematics while allowing them to start Algebra classes, in the same semester.

MAT-032 Algebra B PDF

Algebra B is the second of a 2 semester Algebra course.  Algebra A is the first of a 2 semester Algebra course. These courses are designed for the student who has not studied algebra previously, or for the student who has found algebra to be a difficult subject. Topics include signed numbers, variables, integral exponents, linear eqatuins, and rational expressions.

 
MAT-040 Algebra for Liberal Arts:PDF

MAT-040 Algebra for Liberal Arts is an algebra course for students whose program of study does not require the completion of MAT-160 Intermediate Algebra and whose placement score indicates a need for a review of basic algebra. Topics include signed numbers, variables, integral exponents, linear equations and problem solving, graphing equations, systems of equations, and exponents and polynomials. This course does not satisfy the prerequisite requirement for MAT-160 Intermediate Algebra (see MAT-048).

MAT-044 Algebra Topics:PDF

MAT-044 Algebra Topics is an algebra course for students who have completed MAT-040 Algebra for Liberal Arts and whose program of study requires the completion of MAT-160 Intermediate Algebra. Topics include integral exponents, polynomials, rational expressions, square roots and quadratic equations.

MAT-048 Algebra:PDF

MAT-048 Algebra is a basic algebra course for students whose placement examination indicates a need for review in algebra and whose program of study requires the completion of MAT-160 Intermediate Algebra. Topics include signed numbers, variables, literal equations and formulas, square roots, integral exponents, polynomials, linear and quadratic equations, rational expressions, and inequalities.
