Developmental Math includes Math 95 (Elementary Algebra) and Math 96 (Intermediate Algebra). Note: as of Fall 2020 Math 95 will no longer be offered as a standalone class, and as of Fall 2021 Math 96 will no longer be offered as a standalone class.

Developmental math classes give students the basic skills and understanding required for success in university-parallel classes and non-transfer 100-level classes. Classes are kept small (base class size is 22 students) to personalize the learning environment and facilitate student-teacher interaction.

Developmental math classes at TMCC are offered as lecture, computer-assisted and online formats. Please note that credits earned in developmental math classes do not count towards graduation.
