Self-Paced Modular Algebra Courses

 

MATH 081 - 085 and MATH 091 - 095

Effective Summer 2012, Shoreline offers the equivalent of Math 080 and Math 099 as individual 1-credit module courses. (These were previously offered as variable-credit courses Math 085 and 095). If a student has the prerequisites to take Math 080 or Math 099, he/she can take the modular math sequence instead.

 

Here are some important things to know about these courses:

1)      These are NOT online courses.

    • students are expected to attend two hours per week at the scheduled class time
    • additional open lab time is available
    • instruction is delivered through an online program with in-person instructor assistance while in class/lab
    • students can also use this online program while off-campus

2)      Self-paced:

    • you earn one credit at a time by completing each module
    • how many credits you do in a quarter is up to you
    • you need to be self-motivated
    • students can take more than one quarter to complete all five courses, but all five courses in each sequence (either Math 081 - 085 or Math 091 - 095) must be completed within one year. If not completed within one year, the student must start over with the first of the modules/course.

3)      Course equivalency:

    • Math 080, Elementary Algebra: student must pass all five courses Math 081, 082, 083, 084, and 085
    • Math 099, Intermediate Algebra: student must pass all five courses Math 091, 092, 093, 094, and 095

4)      Registration:

    • To register for any number of the modules 081 – 085, the student should register for the desired number of credits in MATH 086.

      To register for any number of the modules 091 – 095, the student should register for the desired number of credits in MATH 096.

    • we recommend the student initially sign up for at most 3 credits.
    • credits can be added as the student progresses up to the 7th week of the quarter
    • contact Mathadvising@shoreline.edu to get an entry code, if needed. (Please attach the document that shows you meet the prerequisite; i.e. Compass scores or unofficial transcript.)
