Prerequisite: None.
Hours: 54 hours LAB
Description: The course enables students to review specific math topics which are necessary for success in MATH 20, MATH 30, MATH 100 or any course requiring the skills taught in these classes. Learning objectives and the course of study will be designed for each individual based on the needs of the student. A partial list of modules includes fractions, decimals, signed number arithmetic, percent, simplifying algebraic expressions, factoring, and solving linear equations. The course may be taken for credit a maximum of four times (with new learning objectives/activities each time). Modules cannot replace any existing mathematics course, and successful completion of MATH 83 currently does not satisfy any mathematics prerequisite. MATH 83 is a credit/no-credit class and students can enroll in the class at any time during the semester.
