Math Acceleration

- Accelerate Developmental Math students through the developmental curriculum by reducing the number of courses in the developmental math sequence.
- Focus on increasing transfer rates for non-STEM majors who need Statistics to transfer.

- Developmental Preparatory Course for Math 13 (Statistics)
- pre-req is successful completion of pre-algebra or placement into elementary algebra
- covers elementary and intermediate algebra topics from Math 201 and 203 that are needed for statistics, with a data analysis contextualization
- introduces basic statistical topics covered in college-level statistics

- intended only for those students who want to transfer and need Math 13
- not intended for STEM, nursing, or business majors – who need intermediate algebra as a pre-requisite for other math/science courses
- does not substitute for intermediate algebra
- students seeking an AA degree before they transfer will need Math 13 to meet their AA requirements

- 2 sections begun at BCC Spring 2012
- COA begins: Fall 2012
- 5-credit hour course
- Meets twice/week; almost 6 hrs/week
