MATH 1000 Individualized Mathematics 3-5 Units
Prerequisite: None
Advisory: Determine or confirm placement using ARC’s Math Self-Assessment
System.
Hours: 90 hours LEC
This program is an open-entry/open-exit, independent study approach for
students wishing to take MATH 32 (Prealgebra, 3 units), MATH 100
(Elementary Algebra, 5 units), or MATH 120 (Intermediate Algebra, 5
units). During the first class meeting, students choose the specific course in
which to enroll. For students who do not have a prerequisite, course placement
should be determined by ARC’s on-line self-assessment system. Students
who complete one course may advance immediately to the next one.
Students may choose to complete a course in one semester (or less), or take
up to two semesters. Unit credit is only awarded for the semester in which
the course is completed. Students who receive a notation of ┬┐In Progress┬┐
must register in the same individualized course the following semester in
order to complete the course and receive full unit credit. Computer-based
instruction is an integral component. Work may be done on campus (computers
available) or off campus (software runs on PC Windows or
Macintosh w/virtual PC software).
