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 any 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. The course will include non-cognitive aspects to promote a productive academic mindset as well as study strategies that result in academic success.

MATH 0999 - Support for College Algebra

A course designed to allow students to simultaneously satisfy the LS requirement and take MATH 1111, an Area A math course. The course will cover the Beginning or Intermediate Algebra topics needed for the student to be successful in College Algebra. The course allows the instructor to assist the students with any deficiencies they may have while attempting the College Algebra topics. The material covered in MATH 0999 is meant to provide background information or just-in-time remediation of the topics covered in MATH 1111. Topics to be covered include: polynomial, rational, and radical expressions and equations, quadratic functions and their graphs, and systems of equations.

Prerequisite/Corequisite:
Prerequisite: Accuplacer Next-Generation Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics score of 258 or higher, or any Area A MATH course or MATH 0989 with a grade of C or higher, old SAT Math score of 440 or higher, new SAT Math Section score of 480 or higher, new SAT Math Test score of 24 or higher, ACT Math score of 17 or higher, or MPI of 1175 or higher

Special Note:

There are two different pathways through LS Math. One is for students whose majors require MATH 1111, College Algebra, or higher in their core. The other is for students whose majors allow MATH 1101 or MATH 1001 in Area A of core.

Test Taking Tips

  1. Take your time. Answering the math problems as accurately as possible could save you time and money in the future if you are not required to take an extra math class.
  2. Check your answers. Remember, in a multiple choice test, there are usually at least two wrong answers that are based on the most common miscalculations or process errors.
  3. Calculators and scrap paper. Certain placement test problems will allow you to use the built-in calculator. If not, use the scratch paper that will be provided. (This scratch paper will be collected before you leave the test, so don’t make your to-do list on it.)
