Math Options: 1110, 1315, 1320, 1330, 1340

The next math class you take depends on your degree requirements and the type of math you enjoy. For help picking the best class for you, see an Academic Coach.

Does Your Degree Require Math 1315, 1460, or 1710?

These are your math class options if you've completed MATH 1310 or have the following placement scores:

Accuplacer Algebra: 104-120
Accuplacer College Math: 37-68
ACT: 22-24
SAT: 440-480

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

MATH 1315 – College Algebra

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

MATH 1315 prepares you for further study in algebra and calculus (MATH 1410 and beyond). 

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

Workshop:  The College Algebra Workshop (MATH 1316) adds an hour of class time to MATH 1315 to provide students with a chance to solve problems in class before being on their own doing homework. 

You can find the Workshop sections of MATH 1315/1316 in the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Instructional Method "LEARNING COMMUNITY CLASS."  The paired sections are also listed on the “Learning Communities” page linked to the Schedule of Classes website.  You will need to register for the sections of MATH 1315 and MATH 1316 that have matching section numbers (which will always have a middle digit of “5”, such as 150, 151, 250, 350, etc.). The two classes will be conducted as a single 4-credit class..

SPACE:  Certain sections of MATH 1315, designated as Self-Paced And Computer Enhanced (SPACE), give you the option of completing MATH 1315 in a self-paced environment, allowing you to complete the early material at an accelerated rate, giving you more time with the material at the end of the course if you need it.  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 1310 in the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Instructional Method "COMPUTERIZED & ACCELERATED,” or by looking for section numbers in which the middle digit is “7” or “8”.

Does Your Degree List a General "Mathematics Requirement"?

Many AA and AS degrees simply require the "Mathematics Requirement," without specifying a particular class. If your degree has this listed, you can take any of the algebra or calculus classes listed above or, if you prefer non-algebraic math, you can choose one of the following courses:

MATH 1320 – A Survey of Mathematics

Course Formats: Face-to-face, Distance Learning

This non-algebraic class covers some mathematical topics from everyday life and some  abstract mathematical ideas.  

MATH 1330 – Probability and Statistics

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

This  class covers the statistical tools you see in the news, politics, medicine, and many areas in the social sciences.   

Lab:  There are a few sections of Math 1330 that include additional applications of the statistics to real data using statistical software.  These classes integrate the statistical concepts from MATH 1330 with applications in a 1 credit lab, MATH 1331 (Introduction to Data Analysis Using Technology). 

You can find the Lab sections of MATH 1330/1331 in the Schedule of Classes by selecting the Instructional Method "LEARNING COMMUNITY CLASS."  The paired sections are also listed on the “Learning Communities” page linked to the Schedule of Classes website.  You will need to register for the sections of MATH 1330 and MATH 1331 that have matching section numbers (which will always have a middle digit of “5”, such as 150, 151, 250, 350, etc.). 

MATH 1340 – Geometry for Design

Course Formats: Face-to-face

This class is designed for students studying art.  

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.
