Mathematics Learning Support (MLS)

Mathematics Learning Support (MLS) is designed to help students who scored below 19 on the ACT or below 250 on the Next Generation ACCUPLACER mathematics subsections become better prepared for college level math and science courses. As of Fall 2015, math learning support will be completed as a corequisite with a predetermined college level math course. Each corequisite class pair consists of two three hour classes that must be taken together.

Students testing into math learning support have two corequisite class options: MATH 0530/1530 and MATH 0900/1000. Students interested in STEM majors and/or majors that require Chemistry or College Algebra should enroll in the MLS corequisite algebra courses, MATH 0900/1000*. Students in non-STEM majors who do not need Chemistry or College Algebra should enroll in the MLS corequisite statistics courses, MATH 0530/1530.

Students who wish to attempt testing out of MLS, may do so via the Next Generation ACCUPLACER exams. The Next Generation ACCUPLACER is offered before the start of each semester through the Testing Centers. Students may attempt the Next Generation ACCUPLACER for a particular learning support subject only once per semester.

Students can consult the flowcharts below to assist in determining which MLS route would be best for their major.

Two flow charts that describe the different course routes for students who require math learning support. Students taking the MATH 0530/1530 co-requisite courses can then move on the Anatomy and Physiology and Algebra Essentials. Then, after Algebra Essentials, students may take College Algebra and/or Chemistry. Students choosing the MATH 0900/1000 path, may then take Anatomy and Physiology, College Algebra, and/or Chemistry.

 

*The corequisite algebra option, MATH 0900/1000 will not satisfy a gen ed math requirement, so students should only choose this path if Chemistry and/or College Algebra are necessary for their major.

**Any math courses other than MATH 0530 and MATH 1530E may be taken concurrently with READ 0562 Reading Learning Support. Please discuss the appropriate math course for your program of study with your success coach or advisor.
