What is Math 010?

Math 010 is a 4 week 2-credit intensive review course designed for students who have had success in past arithmetic and algebra courses and who need to review those skills before progressing through the math sequence at TCC. The primary mode of instruction is computer-mediated; however, an instructor will be available during regular class times to assist students. Self-motivation and a willingness to work with computer software both inside and outside of the classroom are essential for successful completion of the course. The following TCC courses can be reviewed through Math 010: Math 75 – Basic Arithmetic (MATH 010W), Math 85 – Introduction to Algebra (MATH 010X), Math 90 – Elementary Algebra (MATH 010Y), Math 95 - Intermediate Algebra (MATH 010Z).

On the first day of class students will take a computerized assessment test using ALEKS* (the web based computer program used for Math 010). ALEKS determines the topics that a student needs to review and provides instructional material in each area. Upon successful completion of Math 010 the student will be able to advance to the next level of classroom math at TCC. Math 010 is graded on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis only (grade of S or U).

Math 010 may be right for you, if…

  • You have studied the material you wish to cover in the past and simply need to brush up your skills.
    • You assessed within 10 points of the cutoff score on the accuplacer assessment test (see back of this form for specific scores).
    • You took a Math 75, 85, 90 or 95 class at TCC and received a grade of D or higher.
    • You have taken math classes somewhere else and need a refresher.

-AND-

  • You are self-motivated and committed to covering a lot of math material in a short amount of time (successful students usually spend 40 or more hours working on the material over the four week period).

-AND-

  • You are comfortable with computers and willing to study math through computer-mediated learning. No additional textbook is required but you must purchase access to the online program ALEKS* (approx. $40). A login access code is available for purchase at the TCC Bookstore or online during class on the first day.

I understand:

  • Math 010 is not a traditional course.
  • Math 010 is a 2-credit intensive class that requires self-motivation and the willingness to work with computer software both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • I will be required to purchase an ALEKS Student Access Code from the TCC Bookstore or online.
  • Math 010 is graded on a S/U basis only.
  • Math 010 is NOT designed to be taken concurrently with any other math class. If students need the review that Math 10 provides, they should plan to drop their current math class before they sign up for Math 10. Students who drop a 5-credit math class will not have to pay tuition on the 2-credit Math 10 class.
