| MTH -
We live in a world enriched by technology. To that end, the Mathematics Department embraces the selected use of technology, e.g., calculators, computer instruction, online testing, and online assignments, to enhance the learning of mathematics. Some MCC mathematics courses are available via non-traditional delivery methods such as hybrid courses, online courses, and courses taught exclusively in computer classrooms. Many mathematics instructors, in both traditional and non-traditional classes, require that students use online ancillaries as part of their courses, including online tests and assignments. Students should refer to their instructor's course information sheet for details. If there are questions or concerns about the use of technology, students are encouraged to contact their instructor, preferably before classes start.
Mathematics Placement:
Correct placement is important for optimizing a student's chances of success in mathematics. Options for a student's first course in mathematics at MCC depend on the student's placement level as indicated in the table below. Placement test scores and/or recent math transcripts, SAT or ACT test scores are used to determine initial placement levels. TRS placement levels may be revised based on pretesting during the first week of a TRS class. Regardless of placement level, students must satisfy the published course prerequisites.
