Basic Math & Prealgebra (DEV 0114)

Traditional, blended, and web-based sections are available for DEV 0114.

Bridge to College Math (MATH 1099)

Only traditional sections are available for MATH 1099.

DEV 0114 Basic Math and Pre-Algebra (A, SP, SU) 4 credits

4 credits
This course begins with a review of arithmetic and introduces introductory algebraic concepts. Students will work with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, integers, and use this knowledge to calculate and simplify algebraic expressions and solve linear equations. Related applications and problem solving including ratio, proportion, and percent are also covered. Not open to students with MATH 10XX or higher.
Lecture: 4 hours
Prerequisites: By placement exam. Lab fee: $5.00

MATH  1099 Bridge to College Math (A, SP, SU) 3 credits

Note: Passing MATH 1099 with an "S" will not replace a grade of D or E in a previous DEV math course and therefore will not change a student's GPA.

The topics contained in DEV 0114, MATH 1050 (or MATH 1020 & 1030), and MATH 1075 will be delivered in a modularized format using technology, allowing students to begin at the appropriate level based on course placement and allowing them to move through as many modules and courses as they can within the time limits of the course. This modularized, mastery approach will pre-test, provide a prescriptive study plan, and post-test students from one module to the next. Emphasis will be placed on individualized pace with a greater time period of active learning. At the end of the course, based on proficiency of the series of modules associated with one or more courses, students will earn a grade of “S” for satisfactory progress and gain permission to enter subsequent courses in their plan of study. This course is recommended for students who have an appropriate placement score and have passed High School Algebra II within the last 5 years. 
Lab: 6 hours
Prerequisite: Placement score which allows for DEV 0114 or MATH 1020 or MATH 1030 or MATH 1075 registration Lab fee: $7.00

DEV 0194 SPT: Dev Math (On Demand)
