The Math Class that's Right for You

Developmental mathematics is a sequence of pre-college level math courses designed to prepare students for college level mathematics. The developmental mathematics program at Weber State University offers Pre-algebra (Math 0950), a First Course in Algebra (Math 0990) and Intermediate Algebra (Math 1010), as well as Pathway to Contemporary Math (Math 810). Many students entering an open enrollment institution like Weber State University need developmental mathematics courses for a variety of reasons. It is the goal of the WSU Developmental Mathematics program to assist students in gaining the math skills they need for success in college level mathematics in as short a time as possible.

Weber State University is a leader in the state when it comes to developmental mathematics reform.  Traditional developmental mathematics programs only provide lecture courses, shown by research to be the least effective method of instruction.
