Math provides the foundation of many of the top careers in business, finance, engineering, science and more. If you enjoy deciphering equations and putting your problem-solving skills to the test, mathematics may be a good starting point. Because math is essential to many fields of study, it is also a general education requirement that all degree-seeking students must complete.

Whether you struggle or are a whiz in math, we meet you where you are, including if you placed into a developmental math class. For information on how you can improve your skills, especially if it’s been awhile since you took a math class, check out the Resources for Students available on this page. Here you’ll find support in math labs, tutoring, overcoming math anxiety workshops and our Math FIRS3T redesign program, which provides both self-paced and guided developmental math materials to speed up your studies and increase your proficiency.

Prepare for transfer to a four-year institution majoring in mathematics or other subjects requiring a strong math background. Develop analytic skills, computer- based problem solving ability and the use of mathematical reasoning to further the scientific method.

If you placed into a developmental math course, you should begin developmental math requirements in your first term and continue in your required sequence until your college level math is complete.

Please note that you have the option to retake the Math Accuplacer test if you first complete a structured review. However, once you have taken a developmental math class, you cannot retake the Accuplacer test. You will need to complete the developmental requirements before progressing to college credit math classes. Accuplacer retesting information can be found at an AACC Testing Center.

Talk to an advisor about your options, including accelerated options, which are recommended strongly for eligible students. You may want to consider AACC’s Math FIRST program as well.

Get additional help from math tutors on the Arnold campus and at AACC at Arundel Mills.

An alternative approach for developmental math students, AACC’s Math FIRST program is available for all three developmental math courses: MAT-010 Prealgebra, MAT-011 Beginning Algebra, and MAT-012 Intermediate Algebra.

How you benefit as a student in The Math FIRST redesign program:

- Technology is used to enhance instruction, meet individual student needs and establish a positive learning culture in the classroom.
- Class meetings are scheduled in computer classrooms or computer labs with your instructor and classmates.
- Note-taking guides aid students in organizational skills and in learning mathematics.
- Retakes are allowed on all assessments until course learning objectives are mastered.
- Individual student needs are met through a flexible pacing schedule that allows for acceleration through the course material.

Student support outside of class is available in the Math FIRST Labs in Careers Center Room 190 on the Arnold campus and in Room 311 in AACC at Arundel Mills.

You’ll meet other math aficionados as you learn and share about interesting topics in mathematics as well as other fields of application.

You can recognize and conquer math anxiety by attending a workshop to explore new approaches to learning math. Come find what works best for you. Workshops are free and preregistration is not required.

For information about the workshops, contact workshop leader, Nancy Chell, associate professor of mathematics, at nlchell@aacc.edu.

What you’ll gain form this workshop:

- Identify past math experiences that get in your way.
- Master math skills with five study steps.
- Select the best study strategies for you.
- Tame your fear of word problems.
- Reduce test anxiety, relax and show what you know.
- Use memory strategies for formulas and more.
- Use internet and technology resources effectively.
- Write and check your math work to minimize errors.
