OCC Math Pathways

Struggling with your college goals because of math? OCC has developed a new math pathway that might be the right fit for you.

Students who need Statistics to fulfill their major’s prerequisites or finish their certification are eligible to take OCC’s new Math Literacy, MAT1125, course this fall. Math Literacy shortens your path to the college level mathematics by satisfying the prerequisite for Statistics and Quantitative Reasoning. See the flow chart below for an illustration of the traditional college math path on the left and the expedited pathway with our new Math Literacy course on the right.

In addition to streamlining the math pathway, Math Literacy will also take a non-traditional approach to learning mathematics. Students will be challenged to apply algebra to real life situations and participate in hands-on exercises. This unique method will cater to students who find themselves asking the question, “When will I ever use this?” in a math course.

Students are encouraged to speak with their OCC Counselor to learn if Math Literacy is the right fit for them.

This course is part of a national movement to offer students an alternative to traditional algebra courses that primarily prepare students to pursue studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Math Literacy, MAT1125, will be offered for the first time this fall. The next course in the pathway, Quantitative Reasoning, MAT1525, will be offered for the first time this winter.
