Math Courses

MATH 0987 - Foundations for Quantitative Reasoning

This course integrates numeracy, proportional reasoning, algebraic reasoning and understanding of functions.  Students will develop conceptual and procedural tools that support the use of key mathematical concepts in a variety of contexts.  This course prepares students requiring Learning Support (or otherwise advised to refresh their mathematical literacy) to take MATH 0997 (Support for Quantitative Reasoning) and Math 1001 (Quantitative Skills and Reasoning).  MATH 0997 is not intended to prepare students for MATH 1111.  Students needing MATH 1111 are advised to enroll in MATH 0989 or MATH 0999 as placement indicates.

MATH 0997 - Support for Quantitative Skills and Reasoning

A course designed to allow students to simultaneously satisfy their LS requirements and take MATH 1001, an Area A math course. This course is designed to support a student taking MATH 1001 with just in time assistance. Topics will parallel topics being studied in MATH 1001 as well as the essential quantitative skills needed to be successful in MATH 1001. It emphasizes processing information in context from a variety of representations, understanding of both the information and the processing and understanding which conclusions can be reasonably determined.

MATH 0998 - Support for Mathematical Models

A course designed to allow students to simultaneously satisfy their LS requirement and take MATH 1101, an Area A Math. The course will cover the Beginning or Intermediate Algebra topics needed for the student to be successful in Mathematical Models.  Emphasis is on the use of elementary functions to investigate and analyze applied problems and questions, supported by the use of appropriate technology and on effective communication of quantitative concepts and results. The course allows the instructor to assist the students with an deficiencies they may have while attempting the Mathematical Models topics. The material covered in MATH 0998 is meant to provide background information or just-in-time remediation of the topics covered in MATH 1101.

English Courses

ENGL 0989 - Foundations for English Composition

An integrated reading and writing course designed to give students with Learning Support English requirements an opportunity to develop their basic skills in English and composition before they proceed with the freshman-level English course.  This is an individualized lecture/lab-based course designed to prepare students for college credit English and reading-intensive classes by providing exposure and practice in reading and writing expository, narrative, and persuasive texts.  Topics include applying critical reading skills for organizing, analyzing, and retaining material and developing written work appropriate to the audience, purpose, situation, and length of the assignment.  The course integrates fundamental reading skills - comprehension, vocabulary, and rate - with foundation skills in writing a variety of academic essays.

ENGL 0999 - Support for English Composition

This is a 1 credit hour, 1 contact hour, just-in-time remediation course which will have, as it co-requisite, English 1101, thus fulfilling national-, state-, and System-wide mandates.  The course will meet for one hour, once a week, for 16 weeks in addition to the class meeting of the co-requisite English 1101 course in which the student is enrolled.  The course has a required computer-based Adaptive Learning Software component that must be completed on the student's own time outside of the classroom.  This class is taken along with English 1101 as a co-requisite and may be facilitated by the same professor, although the course is malleable to different methods of delivery as deemed necessary by the department.

Learning Support Levels

Foundations

Students who place into any Foundations-level LS must pass with a grade of C or higher, and will then progress to the Co-Requisite LS coursework. The University System of Georgia defines an attempt in foundations Learning Support as any semester in which a student earns any grade other than A, B, C, W or WM. UNG does not offer any Foundation level LS online.

Co-Requisite

Co-Requisite LS is comprised of a one-semester combination of a support class plus Gateway (college-level) coursework. Upon completion of Co-Requisite LS requirements, the student will have satisfied both LS and Gateway credit. E.g., a student who is enrolled in MATH 0997, Support for Quantitative Skills + MATH 1001, Quantitative Skills, and completes all course requirements will have satisfied LS math as well as earned Area A math credit. UNG Co-Requisite LS online.

Online Classes

As long as they have satisfied the course pre-requisites, students with Learning Support Requirements may take online classes via UNG Online or eCore*. 

*NOTE: There are specific steps to register for eCore classes.

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
