Beginning Spring 2017, Marion Technical College (MTC) is transitioning math courses to meet new state requirements and improve student success. Use this planning guide to see when courses are offered. Talk with your advisor about the best plan for earning your degree!
Phasing Out in
Quantitative Reasoning is a course allowing students exploration in mathematical topics encountered on a day-to-day basis through real-life problems and situations. Students will learn to communicate effectively with numbers. Topics include ratios, rates, percentages, units, descriptive statistics, linear and exponential modeling, correlation, logic, personal finance, and probability.
Statistics is an introduction to descriptive and inferential statistical methods including point and interval estimation, hypothesis testing, and regression. Real data and appropriate technology will be used.
College Algebra emphasizes the use of algebra and functions in problem solving and modeling. Appropriate use of technology and applying mathematics to real-world situations is emphasized. Topics include relations, functions, graphs, polynomial functions, rational functions, exponentials, logarithms, analytical geometry, and systems of equations.
Please refer to the math placement guidelines to determine the best starting point for entry into a Math Pathway.
All mathematics courses at a 1200 level and higher will be designed to satisfy Ohio Transfer Module requirements. They will be guaranteed to transfer!
Co-requisite remediation increases student success and reduces time to graduation! This allows students who would typically be required to complete a developmental course prior to enrolling into a college level course to enroll in a college level math course with the appropriate co-requisite course. These students take both courses concurrently. Not every student will take the co-requisite course.
