MAT 090: STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS IN MATH
**

MAT090 is designed to provide students with the tools they need to achieve a higher level of success in their entry level mathematics courses. Students who have fully participated in but have been unsuccessful in 0-level math courses should take this course. The course is designed to help students understand and learn the skills that are required to be successful in mathematics. Students will learn to be active rather than passive participants in the learning process. Students will work individually and collaboratively throughout the course. Co-requisite: A co-requisite of at least one MAT course.
