MATH 0110 - BASIC MATH SKILLS - TASP REVIEW Credit: 1

Prerequisite: MATH 0310 3 hrs. lab.

This is an individualized, laboratory course designed to review the 10 mathematical skills that are covered on the TASP exam. Included are topics covered in pre-algebra (fundamental mathematics), basic algebra, and geometry. Instruction focuses on individual needs. This course carries institutional credit but will not transfer and will not be used to meet degree requirements, nor is it an alternative for the MATH 0306 Pre-algebra Mathematics, MATH 0308 Introductory Algebra or MATH 0310 Intermediate Algebra.  


MATH 0306, 0308 and 0310 are offered with several course format options. Consult with advisor for proper placement.

Course Format Options:

S Standard three hours per week lecture format.

LL Extended 4 1/2 hours per week combination lecture/lab. The "LL" format will provide an in-depth development of the course concepts and will incorporate lab activities to develop student's problem-solving skills.
