Developmental Math Classes

There are two math courses, MAT 0250 and MAT 0300, that prepare students to enter into college-level math upon successful completion.  Each math class prepares students for different types of degrees—liberal arts or STEM—so be sure to talk with an advisor prior to registration.

MAT 0250

This course (4 credit hours) centers on quantitative reasoning and seeks to develop number sense, algebraic thinking, and critical thinking skills while connecting mathematics to real world applications. The focus is on conceptual understanding and application.

Great for students who:

  • Want to take math for Liberal Arts (MAT 1240)
  • Want to take Statistics (MAT 1260), Integrated Math (MAT 1220/1230) and college-level career math courses (MAT 103, 107, 108)

MAT 0300

This course (4 credit hours) focuses on algebraic reasoning and seeks to develop solid algebraic skill in formal mathematics. The learning outcomes include algebraic skill, conceptual understanding, and application.

Great for students who:

  • Want to take College Algebra (MAT 1340) 
  • Need MAT 1340 for specific Degrees with Designation or who need some level of Calculus for a STEM degree

Co-Requisite Labs

These courses support specific learning outcomes in conjunction with the content taught in the primary math course listed below.

Great for students who:

  • Need additional academic skills support
  • Assess slightly below the cut-off for direct placement into the corresponding math course

Below is a list of co-requisite labs and the math courses they align with:

  • AAA 0100 (supports MAT 0250 - Quantitative Literacy)
