Fast Track to College Algebra: Chabot College Pilot Program—Spring 2018


What is the program?
FAST TRACK through College Algebra is a program that lets you complete your math requirement for transfer to a university without first completing MTH 55, a non-transferable course. Instead, you will take a corequisite course, MTH 122, which will fill in the prerequisite topics as they are needed in transferable MTH 31, College Algebra, which meets the prerequisite to MTH 15, Business Calculus.

What’s required?
You must enroll in both MTH 31-003 and MTH 122-002. Total class hours are MTuWTh 10:30–11:45a.
The program meets 6 hours per week and carries 4 units of credit, but you are expected to treat the program like a 6-unit class. You will be expected to devote at least 12 hours or more per week to homework and studying outside of class. You are advised to allocate 15 hours per week outside of class at the beginning and adjust as the semester progresses.
Students sign a contract indicating that their schedule of work and study will leave them enough time to devote to the program. To get the most out of your time investment, you should be available on campus to take advantage of the available support resources like the instructor’s office hours, drop-in tutoring in the STEM Center, etc.

Who qualifies for the program?
• Students who are eligible to enroll in MTH 55 in Sp18 and who completed high school Algebra 2 or Integrated Math 3 (or higher) with at least a C.
• Students who are eligible to enroll in MTH 53 in Sp18 and who completed high school Precalculus or Integrated Math 4 (or higher) with at least a C.
If a year or more has passed since the last time you took algebra or precalculus and/or if you earn only a C in those classes, be advised that you will likely have to put in more effort than what’s already required, at least in the beginning of the semester while you get into math again. You are advised to review basic algebra before the start of Spring 2018. See suggestions.

How can I apply?
Apply for the program for Spring 2018.
We will respond to your application within a week by email, so make sure that you include in your application an email address that you read frequently.

If you have questions, email Mr. Ho at mho@chabotcollege.edu.
