MATH 0110 - Developmental Math Skills Review, 1 Credit (3 hours lab)

Description

MATH 0111 is established to accommodate students desiring non-course based remediation in developmental mathematics. This structure will best serve students whose assessment score is borderline for an entry course in college level mathematics or a subsequent course in the developmental sequence. The course may be delivered in a traditional or hybrid format, so students must be able to thrive in a self-directed study environment. A subset of outcomes for MATH 0306, 0308 and 0310 will be covered in this course, depending on student needs. This course carries institutional credit but will not transfer nor be used to meet degree requirements.
