Math Developmental Studies

After you complete the Math portion of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment, we are ready to guide you on your path to success.

You are required to participate in TCC’s Math Developmental Studies program if you have not met college readiness standards on the Math part of the TSI Assessment.

Course Placement

Your TSI Math scores determine your placement in our Developmental Math program.

Your 2 Mathematics scores:

  • College Readiness Classification (CRC) Score
  • Diagnostic Level

See on this page:

Step 1: Meet with an advisor

Schedule an appointment with an advisor to talk about your options. Your advisor will be able to help make sure you take the right pathway and the correct math courses.

We offer 2 pathways in Math: Algebraic and Non-Algebraic.

Your TSI scores, your goals, and the institution where you plan to transfer determine the Math Pathway you will take. You’ll save time and money by taking the math courses that fit your degree requirements and career plans.

Step 2: Find Your TSI Scores and Determine Your Math Courses

CRC Score: 910-949 and Diagnostic Level 1-2

You are required to enroll in MATH-0090 Adult Education Math.

MATH–0090 is a free course that reviews basic math skills, including basic arithmetic operations, percents, and equations.

In this course, you will:

  • Use flexible online exercises
  • Work at your own pace
  • Skip math skills you already have
  • Have access to a teacher if you need help

In Math-0090, you will earn a grade of Credit (CR) or No Credit (NC).

You must successfully complete with a grade of CR to take co-requisite courses.

CRC Score: 910-949 and Diagnostic Level 3

You are required to enroll in 1 of the following co-requisite courses:

In this 4-hour approach, you will take a required college-level math course and a co-requisite math course at the same time.

The additional hour of class will help you develop your math skills so you can  succeed in your transferable college-level math course.

You will have most likely finished your math requirement if:

  • You successfully completed MATH–1332 Contemporary Mathematics or MATH–1342 Elementary Statistical Methods
    and
  • Your program of study is in 1 of the following areas:
    • Liberal Arts, Fine Arts & Humanities
    • Social Sciences & Social Services
    • Nursing & some Health Professions*

*Check your degree or certificate program to determine which math courses are required.

CRC Score: 910-949 and Diagnostic Level 4-5

You are required to enroll in 1 of the following co-requisite courses.

Depending on your interests and your goals, you will follow the Non-Algebraic or Algebraic Math Pathway.

Non-Algebraic Pathway

In this 3-hour approach, you will take your required college-level math course and MATH-0111 at the same time.

MATH-0111 will give you access to resources designed to help you successfully complete MATH-1332 Contemporary Mathematics or MATH-1342 Elementary Statistical Methods.

MATH-0111 is free. You will earn a grade of Credit (CR) as long as you do not withdraw from the course. 

MATH-0111 does not require class attendance and does not include classroom teaching. Instead, you will log in to your course in Canvas to access topic reviews, practice tests, and linked materials.

Take these co-requisites if you plan to study in 1 of these areas:

  • Liberal Arts, Fine Arts & Humanities
  • Social Sciences & Social Services
  • Nursing & some Health Professions*

*Check your degree or certificate program to determine which math courses are required.

Algebraic Pathway

In this 5-hour approach, you will take a required college-level math course and a co-requisite math course at the same time.

The additional hours of class will help you develop your math skills so you can  succeed in your transferable college-level math course.

Take these co-requisites if you plan to study in 1 of these areas:

  • Business & Accounting
  • Teaching & Education
  • Science, Engineering, Technology & Math (STEM)
