MTH - Mathematics

MTH15A (3 credits)
Math Fast Track
Offers students the chance to improve math placement more than one level in one term. Designed for students who need to take several math courses before entering a program, who have seen the material before and need to "fill in the gaps." Offered as an emporium style math class which meets six hours per week in a computer lab using computer software that covers material from MTH20 through MTH95 (depending on the math level at which students enter the class and through which they are trying to complete.)
