# Find the Best Math Option for Your Degree

These are your math class options if you've completed MATH 0930 or 0970 or have the following placement scores:

Accuplacer Algebra: 41-65

ACT: 17-18

SAT: 350-390

## Does Your Degree Require Algebra or Calculus?

If your degree requires specific algebra or calculus classes (Math 1310, 1315, 1410, 1415, 1460, 1710 and above) or if you like algebra and want to take more, you can take:

### MATH 0980 – Algebraic Problem Solving II

Course Formats: Face-to-face, Distance Learning, Intersession, SPACE

This algebra class does not satisfy any degree’s math requirement, but it is a necessary prerequisite for degrees that use algebra or calculus. Math classes including 1310, 1315, 1410, 1415, 1460, 1710 and above all build on the content in MATH 0980. You can take either MATH 0980 or MATH 1210 to prepare for MATH 1320 or MATH 1330.

**SPACE**: Certain sections of MATH 0980, designated as Self-Paced And Computer Enhanced (SPACE), allow you to adjust your pace through the course material according to your needs. These classes are held in a computer lab and the work for the class is done using a computer program called ALEKS, with the instructor available for additional help. You can find these sections of MATH 0980 in the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Instructional Method "COMPUTERIZED & ACCELERATED."

### Jumpstart MATH 0980/MATH 1310 – Intermediate Algebra and Algebraic Problem Solving II

The Jumpstart sections allow you to complete Math 0980 and MATH 1310 in the same term. The classes are designed so that the MATH 0980 class directly supports the requirements of the MATH 1310 course.

You can find the Jumpstart sections of MATH 0980/1310 in the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Instructional Method "LEARNING COMMUNITY CLASS." The paired sections are also listed on the “Jump Start Learning Communities” page linked to the Schedule of Classes website. You will need to register for the sections of MATH 0980 and MATH 1310 that have matching section numbers (which will always have a middle digit of “5”, such as 150, 151, 250, 350, etc.).

## Does Your Degree List a General "Mathematics Requirement"?

Many degrees simply require the "AAS Mathematics Requirement" or the "Mathematics Requirement" (for AA and AS degrees), without specifying a particular class. If your degree has this listed, you can choose between a wide variety of classes to meet the requirement. See the catalog for a complete list of options.

If you prefer non-algebraic math or if you want to satisfy the “AAS Mathematics Requirement” or “Mathematics Requirement” as quickly as possible, you can choose between:

### MATH 1211, MATH 1212, MATH 1213, and/or MATH 1214

Course Formats: Face-to-face, Distance Learning, Intersession

These applied math modules support the mathematical needs of career/technical programs across the college. They are each 1 credit and are offered in 4- or 5-week blocks, enabling students to register for three modules during one time slot during the term (you can find them by searching for matching section numbers). Completing any 3 of these 1-credit modules satisfies the "AAS Mathematics Requirement". Completing just MATH 1211 and 1212 prepares you for MATH 1320 or MATH 1330, both of which satisfy the "Mathematics Requirement" listed for many AA and AS degrees. These classes are not algebra classes, so you should not take them if your degree requires Math 1310, 1315, 1410, 1415, 1460, or 1710.

Some sections of this course use an online homework program. To see if an access code for online homework is required, click on “View Books” from the Schedule of Classes and check to see if “MyMathLab” or “MML” is listed.

### Jumpstart MATH 1330/1396 – Probability and Statistics with Lab

Fall and Spring semesters only

This course pairing allows you to jump straight into MATH 1330, which satisfies the "Mathematics Requirement" listed for many AA and AS degrees, without taking MATH 0980 or 1210 first (as long as you qualify for 0980 or 1210). If you take the Math 1330/1396 Jumpstart, you will attend one integrated 5-credit class, covering the same statistics topics that are covered in all other sections of 1330, but with extra time to discuss the arithmetic skills as they come up.

You can find the Jumpstart sections of MATH 1330/1396 in the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Instructional Method "LEARNING COMMUNITY CLASS." The paired sections are also listed on the “Jump Start Learning Communities” page linked to the Schedule of Classes website. You will need to register for the sections of MATH 1330 and MATH 1396 that have matching section numbers (which will always have a middle digit of “6”, such as 160, 161, 260, 360, etc.).

## Does Your Degree Require Math 1110?

If your degree requires Math 1110 or if you are interested in understanding why basic math works the way it does, consider this course:

### MATH 1110 – Math for Teachers I

Course Formats: Face-to-face, Distance Learning

This class is designed for students going into Early Childhood or Elementary Education. It does not satisfy most other degrees’ math requirements.
