MT 0033 3.0
Math Enrollment
A course intended for students needing credit for MT 0103, MT 0203, and/or MT 1303. Math Enrollment (MT 0033) is a self-paced, computer based course that will lead to enrollment and completion of MT 0103, MT 0203, or MT 1303. No grade or credit will be given for MT 0033; students will end the semester with a grade in either MT 0103 or MT 0203 or MT 1303. Primary Mode of delivery is computer based with support from faculty and tutors in the Learning Center. Students may elect to accelerate the completion of a course or to complete more than one course in a given semester, but will receive credit for only one course. Class meets at a regularly scheduled time and attendance is required. Access to high speed internet is highly recommended.

MT 0103 3.0
Pre-Algebra
Pre-Algebra is an entry level course for students in preparation for the Introductory/Intermediate algebra sequence. Students will gain a background in arithmetic and algebraic topics by means of various presentation styles and group work. Topics to be covered include: arithmetic operations on the set of whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers, including decimals, exponents and percents, solving linear equations, various applications in problem solving, the coordinate system, and basic graphing. Placement in Pre-Algebra is determined by a student's score on the math placement test and/or his/her mathematical background. When successfully completed (grade C or better), the course satisfies the college's prerequisite for Introductory Algebra. DEV
