Developmental Math Pathways

Math Literacy Pathway

Math 90-91-98-107 or 146

This pathway is appropriate for those students who don’t need as much algebra and instead need the essential mathematical literacy skills that are useful in their college courses, future careers, and lives.

This shortened pathway leads to MATH&107 or MATH&146.

  • MATH&107 and MATH&146 are not prerequisites for any math courses.
  • MATH 98 is not a prerequisite for MATH 99.

Students in the Math Literacy pathway will find their academic/career options will be more limited than if they selected the Algebra Intensive pathway.

Some programs and transfer institutions may require the Algebra Intensive pathway courses for admission or graduation.  Speak with your Success Coach or faculty Advisor regarding program and transfer requirements.
