ATTENTION, AMBITIOUS DEVELOPMENTAL MATH STUDENTS (Did you place into Math 105?)
Shorten completion time of the Math requirements for your degree or certificate. Start with Pre-Algebra (Math 112) instead of Basic Math (Math 105). Here is how. Start on the Math Path.
Math Path: (BS007CE, Section Number 8702) is a pre-semester refresher course in basic mathematics designed to provide you with the necessary math skills to start and succeed in a fall semester Pre-Algebra course, and possibly, in some cases, an Elementary Algebra course. Math Path meets from 9 AM to 12:30 PM, Monday through Friday during the two week period (Aug 13 – Aug 24) just prior to the start of fall semester. Successful completion guarantees you a fall semester 2012 seat in a Math 112 Pre-Algebra class.
How do I get in?
Take the LACC College Mathematics placement test. Schedule your placement test in person or online with Assessment Testing Office.
If the placement exam puts you in Basic Math (Math 105), you can still take Math 112 (Pre- Algebra) in fall 2012 by successfully completing Math Path.
Request admission to Math Path at the Math Department, in person or by email. Include a copy of your placement test results and your contact information with your request.
We will contact you within two working days if you are eligible. You can then pick up an add permit for the class in person and process it through the Admissions Office.
Contact Math Dept, In Person: Math Department Office, room 103, Franklin Hall between hours of 9AM and 5PM, Monday - Thursday

Why should I get in?
Similar Programs are in place at several other Colleges across the Country, and students who participate have actually outperformed their peers who placed directly into Pre-Algebra.
You can save yourself a semester or more of Math and reach your degree or certificate goal in less time. Many students have the capability and motivation to succeed in these programs even if their placement test scores recommend Math 105.
What does it cost?
Math Path is a non-credit course and there is no enrollment charge to the student.
How does it work?
Pass the exit test at the end of the course and you will be guaranteed a fall semester 2012 seat in the Math course for which you qualify.
