Mathematics (MATH) Course Descriptions

Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Requirements. A student who fails to meet the minimum passing standard on the mathematics section of the TSIA must enroll in an appropriate developmental option determined by the Department of Mathematics. The student must be continuously enrolled in the developmental mathematics program until TSI requirements are satisfied. TSI requirements may be satisfied by one of the options specified under Developmental Education.
Noncoursebased Option. Certain students as determined by the Department of Mathematics may be eligible to participate in noncoursebased activities to complete TSI requirements. Contact the department for information about this option.
Coursebased Option. Specially designated sections of freshman mathematics courses (“Tsections,” whose section number begins with a “T”) are designed to provide additional support for students who are not TSI complete. Students who are required to participate in developmental activities must enroll in these sections, which are identified by section numbers T10, T20, etc.
Mathematics 1314 and Mathematics 1324 “Tsections” meet for six hours weekly; Mathematics 1332 and Mathematics 1342 “Tsections” meet for five hours weekly. In all cases, “Tsections” only count three hours toward a student’s bill, course load, and GPA. A passing grade in mathematics “Tsection” will both complete the student’s TSI requirements in mathematics and also earn the student credit for the appropriate collegelevel mathematics course. Students should choose the appropriate course in conjunction with their academic advisor to align with their degree programs.
A student enrolled in a mathematics “Tsection” is also subject to the special provisions regarding class attendance and withdrawals for students who are not TSI complete.
130C Developmental Mathematics (30). An introductory course designed to remediate identified deficiencies and provide a review of fundamental operations in mathematics based on the student’s mastery of the College and Career Readiness Standards. Topics may include elementary algebra and functions; intermediate algebra and functions; geometry and measurement; and data analysis, statistics, and probability. Software will be used to customize the course to fit individual students’ needs.
