Developmental Mathematics

The Developmental Mathematics Department at South Texas College is dedicated to helping students acquire the necessary mathematical skills to meet TSI standards and to be successful in academic level mathematics courses.


Course Structure - Courses meet in a computer lab setting and consist of lecture/discussion time followed by lab time that allows students to practice the objectives they have learned that day, get immediate feedback on their progress via an online interactive program, and get individualized assistance.
