Mathematics - Placement

 

Which College Algebra should a student take?

Students who plan to enroll in MAT 140 and need prerequisite courses should enroll in MAT 110 or MAT 111, depending on placement. MAT 110 and successive courses require the TI-89 graphing calculator.

MAT 109 is the College Algebra course for those students who do not need to take MAT 140. It is the prerequisite course for MAT 130 and transfers to most four-year institutions for those students needing only one semester of College Algebra. (Check with the four-year institution first to see whether MAT 109 is accepted for transfer.) MAT 109 and MAT 130/230 require the TI-83/84 graphing calculator.

If a student does not place into MAT 109 or MAT 110, he or she must take the required prerequisite course(s) first.

Students who place directly into MAT 140 but feel that their trigonometry background is inadequate should enroll in MAT 111.

All scores for placement should be within the last 3 years.
SAT uses the "Math" score. ACT uses the "Math Scale Score".
Students may no longer place into MAT 111 or any calculus course using SATM/ACTM scores.
