Math Placement Decision-Making Resources

Planning to register for a math class and interested in checking your math skills to assist with course selection? FSCJ offers a variety of introductory math courses, from developmental education (or college preparatory) math courses, such as MAT 0018 and MAT 0028, to college-level math courses like MAT 1033 (which counts as an Associate in Arts elective), and college-credit math courses like MAC 1105 (College Algebra) or MGF 1106 (Topics in College Mathematics) and MGF 1107 (Explorations in Mathematics), which fulfill your general education requirements.

Consider taking a math self-check (links provided below) to learn more about your current knowledge and skills in math.

Each of the math courses listed below has a bank of self-checks containing ten questions apiece. At the end of each self-check, you will receive a score and feedback to help you understand the correct response to the questions. These self-checks are designed to assist you in checking your math understanding and in making informed choices when registering for math classes. The self-checks are not considered an official assessment instrument and will not be used by the College for placement. Rather, the self-checks are for your use only. For assistance with registering for classes, please see an FSCJ Student Success advisor.
