About the Program

The Houston Community College Developmental Mathematics Program is designed to meet the math needs of students who are not yet prepared to take college level math courses.  The program offers developmental math courses that are appropriate for students who are underprepared for college level mathematics and for students who want to improve their mathematics skills before studying college level mathematics. Classes are taught by experienced professional instructors of developmental mathematics who provide a rich learning environment and enhanced student/teacher engagement.

Overview

The Developmental Mathematics Program at Houston Community College consistently strives to improve access to students, ensures the alignment of its curriculum, and provides ongoing professional development for its faculty. Each of these items pertains to the strategic plan of the Developmental Mathematics Department.

Goal

The primary goal for the Developmental Mathematics Program is to prepare students for academic success in their required college level mathematics classes.

Courses Offered

Math 0106 Basic Mathematics is the lowest level developmental mathematics course offered in the Developmental Mathematics Program at HCC. This course provides students with the basic arithmetic skills enabling them to proceed to the next level mathematics course.  It is designed to strengthen the skills students need to be successful in a beginning algebra course. Topics include fundamental operations fractions and decimals, percent, ratios, and proportions.  All students who enroll in this course are expected to complete either MATH 0314P, MATH 0324P, MATH 0332P, or MATH 0342P in the same or following semester before attempting either MATH 1314, MATH 1332, MATH 1324, or MATH 1342. A comprehensive Departmental Final Exam will be given in this course. 1 credit.
