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

MATH 1099 is a 3 credit-hour course. The topics contained in DEV 0114, MATH 1050, and MATH 1075 (or MATH 1060) will be delivered in a self-paced format using technology, allowing students to begin at the appropriate level based on course placement and allowing them to move through as many topics, and courses, as they can within the time limits of the semester. Students will be assessed regularly in order to determine their level of mastery. 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 topics in 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.

MATH 1099 is based on the concept of "mastery learning," which involves practicing a skill until it is learned and can be demonstrated. Students are assessed to determine if they are retaining what they are learning often, and topics are re-presented to the students if mastery is not demonstrated. With a score of at least 80% on a final comprehensive assessment, the student progresses to the next course with the potential to pass up to 3 courses.

    • MATH 1099 is completely individualized, so students accept responsibility for their work, progress, and success in the course.
    • The online learning environment monitors time spent on each task and academic achievement.
    • Weekly participation and attendance are required.
    • Instructors are available during mandatory class times to answer questions and guide students.
    • On-demand instruction from the teacher is more meaningful when students are ready to apply what they are being taught.
    • Students can spend more time on concepts they struggle with and less time on concepts that are easier for them instead of learning material according to an instructor's set schedule.
