This course is designed to enable students to transition into credit-bearing college mathematics classes which require a minimum benchmark mathematics score of 19 on the ACT. This course is a direct result of implementing Senate Bill 1 legislation which requires the development of a “unified strategy to reduce college remediation rates by at least 50% by 2014 from what they were in 2010” (Unified strategy for college and career readiness,” 2010). All students with ACT mathematics scores below 19 must be placed in developmental or supplemental coursework, or if the student does not demonstrate proficiency on a placement test when entering college.
Homework (practice) is a necessary tool for the learning of mathematics. Homework is NOT optional!
