Mathematics Requirements at MMC
Our liberal arts curriculum combines interdisciplinary coursework with the mathematical skillsets that will give you an edge in any profession, in any industry.
Curriculum Requirements
Students at MMC have the following requirements in Mathematics, which should be taken within a student’s first 30 credits:
 Prerequisite Requirement: MATH 109: Introductory Algebra, or exempt by placement

Foundational Mathematics Requirement:
 MATH 113: Quantitative Reasoning or
 MATH 129: Intermediate Algebra, or higher (Precalculus, CalculusI, etc.)
Important Note
 Transfer students who enter MMC with collegelevel Mathematics transfer credits do not need to take another Mathematics course. You can check for this in the Evaluate Program option of MMC Connect.
 Students who have placed out of MATH 109 may want to take a higherlevel course than MATH 113 or 129. You will need to complete a prerequisite waiver request and confirm receipt with Professor Lia Margolin, Ph.D.
 Higherlevel Mathematics courses (MATH 141 or higher) may satisfy the DS3 requirement but they cannot be used to doubledip with the Foundation Mathematics requirement.
 Courses taken at another institution (accredited college) to satisfy Mathematics requirements must be approved by the Department of Mathematics. Online courses taken at another institution must have proctored cumulative final exams. The Department of Mathematics does not give permission to take the course outside of MMC if the same course is offered at MMC in the semester when it is requested.
HigherLevel Placement
Higherlevel placement is on a casebycase basis. Test scores are viewable using the View Student Test Summary option of MMC Connect (use the highest score):
