Pathway to Comtemporary Math - Math 0810

Solve real problems. Gain number sense. Build mathematical literacy. 

  • Math 810 -- Prerequisite to Math 1030 only
  • Non-transferable to other universities
  • Active group learning
  • Highest rate of success

Pathway to Contemporary Mathematics provides a less algebra-intensive approach to preparing for Math 1030.  Pathway focuses specifically on the skills and content necessary to succeed in Math 1030, such as numeracy, proportions, functions, geometry, and statistics along with critical thinking, reading, writing, and problem solving. The course will still be challenging, but you will find it more relevant to your life and career than the traditional algebra courses.

Is the Pathway course a combined Math 990 and Math 1010 course?

No. This is a completely different course than Math 990 or Math 1010. You will learn some of the algebra that you would learn in those courses, but not all of it. This course will give you more opportunity to solve real life problems using algebra.

Who should be taking the Pathway course instead of taking Math 0990 and Math 1010

Only students who plan to take Math 1030 for their college level math class should take the Pathway course. Students who plan to take Math 1040, Math 1050, or Math 1080 must take Math 1010. Pathway courses are not transferrable to other Universities.

How do I know if I should take Math 1030, Math 1040 or Math 1050 for my college level math class (also called QL)?

Talk to your major advisor or read your degree requirements in the Weber State Catalog. Typically students in the arts, humanities and social sciences should take Math 1030 to fulfill their QL requirement.

Is this class easier than Math 990 and Math 1010?

Don't let the 800 number fool you. You might actually work harder in this class than you would in a regular algebra class but you might find the work more enjoyable, depending on your past experiences with math. If you find it difficult to memorize math procedure and more interesting to explore and make connections about things, you might like this class much better than a traditional algebra class. Students tend to be more successful in learning math when they can see value and relevance in what they are learning.
