GRAND ISLAND-Central Community College is launching a new math sequence during its 2019 spring semester, which begins Jan. 7.
Prior to this semester, CCC students whose placement scores show they needed additional preparation before going into college-level classes were directed into a foundations class, “Math Essentials,” no matter what their educational or career goals actually required.
That’s now changing with the piloting of a redesigned math sequence called Math Paths, which splits “Math Essentials” into two options: practical math and pre-algebra.
Practical math is for students who need to meet prerequisites for associate of applied science degrees in business, occupational and technical programs. Pre-algebra is for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution.
