Students: please take note ...

College algebra courses are changing …

Beginning in summer 2007, College Algebra courses at Southeastern will undergo significant changes. The changes will affect students who have not yet completed their college algebra requirement. 


After this semester, students in all majors will be required to have either Math 155, a new 5-hour college algebra course for students with an ACT math score of 20 or below, or Math 161, the 3-hour college algebra course for students with an ACT math score of 21 or higher. Math 160 will no longer be offered after the spring 2007 semester.


Math 155 and 161 will cover the same material and will achieve the same outcomes, but Math 155 will include more class time to allow students to improve fundamental skills and to help them succeed in the course. 


This new approach to learning mathematics will better prepare students for success in College Algebra and other required math courses.


Last chance to take Math 160-161 before the changes …

Students who were eligible to take College Algebra this spring, but did not enroll in either Math 160 or Math 161 have one last opportunity to do so. 


A section of each course will be offered at the following times during the spring 2007 Term II session beginning on March 12

            Math 160            Tues/Thurs      2 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.

            Math 161            Tues/Thurs      5 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.


If you are interested in registering for one of these Term II classes, please complete a convenient web form at  A limited number of seats will be available in both of these courses, so if you are interested in this option you should act quickly to reserve your seat.
