Math Pathways

Math Pathways

Math Pathways gives all students the opportunity to become TSI complete or college ready in math in one semester regardless of placement. 

The program tailors the content to meet the needs of the major. There are two specific pathways, the STEM pathway and the non-STEM pathway.

  • The STEM pathway includes majors involving science, technology, engineering and math as well as business and education along with some health science programs.
  • The non-STEM pathway includes majors in arts, humanities, communication, social and behavioral sciences and human services.

 

MATH 0482 - Math for Science, Business and Education (K-8) Majors

4 Hours (4-0)
MATH 0482: TSI Placement 910-936. This course will provide an accelerated pathway for Business and STEM majors. All students who place above 936 on the TSI and who are planning on a STEM, Education (K-8) major or Business degree are encouraged to choose this option. After completing this course with a grade of “C” or greater, the student will be TSI complete for all entry level math pathways.
Corequisite(s): MATH 0180
