Initial Placement in Mathematics: Placement in initial mathematics courses for incoming freshmen is based upon a sequence of between one and three placement exams administered by the Department of Mathematics and Technology. SAT or ACT scores, High School GPA, and incoming freshmen responses to survey questions are also considered in the placement determination process.
Once a course has been completed for credit, students may not take the prerequisites of that course for credit toward graduation. Unless otherwise noted, courses are offered every semester.
Flagler College Math Lab: The Flagler College Math Lab is a service of the college and the mathematics department. The lab is available for all students, full-time and parttime, at all course levels. The Math Lab helps with the content of any mathematics course offered at Flagler College College, but it is primarily a service for students taking courses at the level of MAT 223 Statistics or lower, including the Algebra, Geometry and Calculus sequence courses. Math Lab assistants are available to assist the coordinator in providing guidance in understanding mathematical concepts, completing homework assignments using web based learning environments, mathematical software packages (including StatCrunch), and mastering calculator functions on the TI-83 series of calculators.
In addition to the assistants, the Math Lab provides a resource room of videos that accompany some of the textbooks, Internet-connected computers for tutorial work, and extra texts and worksheets for additional practice. These resources may only be used in the Math Lab.
Secondary Mathematics Education Major: The Secondary Mathematics Education major is housed in the Department of Education. The Department of Mathematics and Technology provide all of the mathematics and technology content, in addtion to SED 366, as denoted in the requirements for the major detailed under the Department of Education.
