Developmental Mathematics Co-Requisite

Course Code:

Credit Hours:
0 (2 hours lab per week)

Effective beginning:

001, 002, 003, 004


Course Description:
This is a developmental, co-requisite course designed for the student who has little or no secondary school background in algebra and needs MAT 1033, as a prerequisite course for MAC1105.


Course Details


Students with placement test scores of 18 or lower on the ACT or 113 or lower on the PERT or students that are required to take MAT 1033 will take MAT0055L as a co-requisite. A grade of "C" or higher must be earned in MAT1033/MAT0055L to advance to the next higher mathematics course - MAC1105. This course does not meet general education requirements in mathematics.

Discipline-level learning outcomes:

Area 3 -Math:   Demonstrate Basic Mathematical Skills and Knowledge

The purpose of the mathematics component of the core curriculum is to develop quantitative literacy with an ability to apply basic mathematical tools in the solution of real-world problems.

M-1 Solve mathematical problems by using arithmetic, algebraic, or geometric skills.

M-2 Translate basic mathematical information verbally, numerically, graphically, or symbolically. 

M-3 Solve mathematical problems using appropriate technology.

M-4 Interpret mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables, or schematics.

M-5 Solve contextual problems using mathematical processes.

MAT 0055L is not a General Education core course and therefore a student in MAT 0055L will demonstrate selected learning outcomes from this list.

Means of accomplishing learning outcomes:

The content for this course has been designed to supplement instruction in MAT1033. Students will work together and individually with instructors providing “just-in-time” tutoring to master skills used in MAT1033 which will be taken as a co-requisite course. Daily instruction along with quizzes, practice tests and additional problem solving will be a part of the class. Assignments not completed in class must be finished outside of class time.

Office Hours: The instructor will be available during office hours for individual assistance. The instructor’s schedule will be posted on their office door and/or via canvas modules.

ACE tutors: Student tutors are available in the ACE to provide individualized help. Hours can be found posted each semester on the ACE door and/or via the web site.
