Mathematics Courses Changing
Notice: Earned credit for MAT 161 College Algebra with grades of C or higher will continue to serve as the needed prerequisite for MAT 263, PHY 151, and CHM 151. If a student who has passed MAT 161 with a C or higher is getting a registration block, contact an advisor or the department head for assistance.
Please read the detailed information below regarding course changes and prerequisites that begin in Fall 2014.
The North Carolina Community College System updated mathematics courses based on the work of a statewide Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Project (MATH-CIP). Beginning in the Fall 2014 semester there will be some changes to mathematics courses offered at Wake Tech.
Many courses will continue to be offered and will be found as usual on the class schedule. The following list details the new math courses, along with the necessary pre-requisites. Note that the prerequisites listed are the minimum needed. Credits earned for higher-numbered MAT or ENG courses will cover the listed minimum prerequisites.
- MAT 001P Math Study Skills, optional co-requisite for MAT 171 Precalculus Algebra
- MAT 143 Quantitative Literacy, AA-transfer and AAS per planning guides, with prerequisites DMA 010-050 and DRE 098
- MAT 152 Statistical Methods I , AA-AS-transfer, with prerequisites DMA 010-050 and DRE 098
The following courses will not be offered again: MAT 115, MAT 140, MAT 151, MAT 161, and MAT 165. Earned credits from past semesters will continue to be valid. Students can meet with advisors to discuss how credits earned in past semesters can continue to meet prerequisite and graduation requirements: course substitution forms or overrides may be applicable.
