Collin College offers pre-algebra and algebraic skills courses to enable students to acquire a solid foundation for successful performance in college level mathematics courses. Among the courses offered to promote success are:
MATH 0302 Pre-Algebra ,
MATH 0305 Beginning Algebra,
MATH 0310 Intermediate Algebra, and
MATH 0406 Introductory Algebra.
Developmental Math pathways:
Take Developmental coursework al the same time you enroll in a credit Mathematics course
All Developmental Math students are required to visit with an Academic Advisor to help determine the most appropriate path to meet their education/career goals as well as consideration for the requirements of potential transfer college or university programs. Students who are placed into Developmental Mathematics at Collin have an option of two pathways to complete their Developmental Math sequence:
Algebra Intensive Path. This path supports students who enroll in MATH 1314/1414 College Algebra or MATH 1324 Mathematics for Business and Social Sciences. Students who are seeking careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields should follow this path.
MATH 0314 Support for College Algebra
MATH 0324 Support for Mathematics for Business and Social Sciences
Quantitative Literacy Path. This path supports students enrolled in MATH 1342 Elementary Statistical Methods or MATH 1332 Contemporary Mathematics. Most developmental math students who follow the quantitative literacy path can expect to complete their developmental math sequence in one semester.
MATH 0332 Support for Contemporary Mathematics
MATH 0342 Support for Elementary Statistical Methods
Students must take an assessment (via the Testing Center) for placement purposes. Once placed in a course, many support services are provided to enable students to succeed. Among the services are the Math Lab, video tapes of lectures on specific topics, tutoring, study skills seminars, and scheduled review sessions.
