# Placement

This three-minute **placement video** introduces our new placement policy once AB 705 (Assembly Bill 705) was implemented
Fall 2019. For additional placement information, please visit the following webpages:

## Courses

Beginning Fall 2019 we began offering placement into transfer-level math courses. Math 100 was created, and support courses were created for statistics, trigonometry, and college algebra. Support courses have a course number that is followed by an X for extra support.

**STEM Pathway: **(**S**cience, **T**echnology, **E**ngineering, **M**athematics) **Math 102 (or 102X), Math 104, Math 211, Math 212, Math 213, Math 214, Math 215***Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, Linear Algebra,
and Differential Equations *

**Business Pathway: Math 103 (or 103X), Math 240**

*College Algebra, Calculus for Business and Social Science*

Business majors are likely going to need to complete statistics. Please check with a COC counselor.

**Statistics Pathway:** **Math 140 (or 140X or 140H)***Introductory Statistics*

**Other Pathways:** **Math 100 or Math 130***Liberal Arts Mathematics or Math for Elementary School Teachers*

### Noncredit Math (tuituion free classes)

Beginning Fall 2022 we stopped offering below transfer level math classes. Topics from Math 058 (Algebra Preparation) through Math 070 (Intermediate Algebra) classes are now offered through our noncredit program in modules that take approximately 10 hours each to complete. You may enroll in these noncredit math classes concurrently while you are taking a credit math class, or you may enroll during Winter or Summer to help prepare you for a Fall or Spring credit math enrollment.
