Transitional Math

Transitional Math provides students with the prerequisite or co-requisite math skills required for success in a variety of curriculum courses, including math, science, culinary and trade courses, to name a few.

The math courses are broken into two categories: prerequisite and co-requisite. Students needing the transitional math course MAT 003 take a one-semester prerequisite course that helps prepare them for their gateway-level math course.

Students who are eligible to take their gateway-level math course with a support class are taking a co-requisite course at the same time. The course pairings that are taken together are:

  • MAT 010 and MAT 110
  • MAT 021 and MAT 121
  • MAT 043 and MAT 143
  • MAT 052 and MAT 152
  • MAT 071 and MAT 171
