Developmental Math helps students acquire the skills and background needed to successfully complete those math courses, required of all students, as part of the University's General Education Program.
Classes provide fundamental math skills with an emphasis on teaching the way each student learns best, with individualized instruction. Developmental Math is for all students wanting a solid foundation in college math: new students, returning students, students who haven't taken a math class in several years, and students wanting to enhance their mathematical backgrounds and competency.
Developmental Math is a division of University College, providing instructional and tutorial assistance to help students be successful in math at the college level. University College provides comprehensive assistance to students in all aspects of student life, academic and extracurricular.
Moving from home to campus can be a shock, even for the most experienced among us. New faces, new places, new schedules, new friends, new food, new freedoms...it's a lot to take in all at once. There is a better way than sleeping through every breakfast, or wearing the same pants for weeks on end, or staying up till 3 a.m. once a week writing papers or cramming for tests. It's called First Year LinC.
First Year LinC won't get you up or make the coffee, but it will help you get through your first year with the least amount of pain and angst. Give us the first eight weeks of the fall semester and we will show you how campus life can be a whole lot easier with just a few tips.
You will learn how to find the resources you need, explore your major and/or career interests, and develop strategies for getting involved on campus - it's the University's how-to course for life after high school.
You recognize the importance of a degree. We recognize that your situation may be unique. While traditional majors are the best option for most students, some students find they have explored a major or several majors and discovered those options are not a good fit for them late in their academic career.
If that sounds like your situation and you are currently a senior at Illinois State University in good academic standing, you may wish to consider applying for the University Studies major and working toward the next step...as a graduate headed toward a career.
