The University of Oklahoma's College of Professional and Continuing Studies (PACS) is offering basic and intermediate algebra in a two-semester sequence to students who need a refresher in math. PACS collaborates with colleges on the University of Oklahoma campus as well as Rose State College to offer additional opportunities for credit and noncredit courses.
At OU, these courses serve as the prerequisites to:
• Mathematics for Critical Thinking (MATH 1473)
• College Algebra (MATH 1503)
• Pre-calculus for Business, Life, and Social Science Majors (MATH 1643)
Most students enrolling in these courses either have a low score on the mathematics placement test offered through OU’s University College or choose to take one of these courses based on their ACT or SAT scores. The typical student is either a returning student who needs a refresher in mathematics before tackling college-level mathematics or a traditional student who does not have a strong foundation in high school mathematics.
