DSMA 0400  Developmental Mathematics I  

Developmental Mathematics I is designed to help the student make the transition from arithmetic to algebra. This is accomplished through in-depth coverage of the fundamentals  of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, sign numbers, order of operations, prime factorization, greatest common factor, variable expressions, introduction to graphs and linear equations. A computer lab where students practice math skills is required. TSIA Score Range:  0 - 338.

DSMA 0401  Developmental Mathematics II

Developmental Mathematics II is designed to provide instruction and practice in performing fundamental algebraic operations involving real numbers, linear equations and inequalities, system of linear equations, polynomials, factoring, graphing, and selected application problems.  A computer lab where students practice math skills is required. Prerequisite: Successful completion of DSMA 0400, or TSIA score range: 339 - 343.

DSMA 0303  Intermediate Algebra

Intermediate Algebra requires an understanding of the topics taught in DSMA 0301. This course teaches such topics as rational expressions, rational exponents and radicals, exponential and logarithmic equations, complex numbers, nonlinear inequalities, systems of nonlinear equations, quadratic equations, and functions and their graphs. This course will assist the student in developing the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for college-level mathematics courses. A computer lab where students practice math skills is optional. Prerequisite: Successful completion of DSMA 0401 or TSIA score range 344 - 349.

Do you want to take the sequence in an accelerated model?

The Developmental Studies Department offers a few accelerated options to complete the DSMA sequence faster.  This includes a computer based instruction course:  DSMA 0499, or a co-requisite model of DSMA 0493 (equivalent to 0303) and MATH 1314 simultaneously.  Please see our NCBO page for more information.  Click Here.

DSMA 0491 Foundations of Algebra

Foundations of Algebra is designed to help studwents accelerate through the concepts needed to be successful in the MATH 1332, Contemporary Mathematics or the MATH 1342, Elementary Statistics classes here at Central Texas College.  This course merges together concepts from each of the Pre-Algebra and Beginning Algebra courses to include (but not limited to) fractions, decimals, linear and quadratic equations, radicals, linear graphing, order of operations, units of measure, geometry, ratios/proportions, probability, statistics, and selected application problems. This course will assist the student in developing the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for college-level non-algebra based mathematics courses. A computer lab where students practice math skills is optional. TSIA score range: 0 - 349
