Math Department

Welcome to the website of the Math Department at Broward College. The site includes a wealth of information related to the work of our faculty and department events.

Our focus is on student success and retention, and on strengthening our Math offerings. We offer a diverse curriculum that challenges our students, prepares them for the workforce or additional educational pathways, and offers them opportunities for research, global awareness, service, and leadership.

Our faculty, both full-time and adjunct, are experts in their field and active in the discipline. They are involved in the scholarship of teaching and learning, on obtaining external funding in support of innovating teaching and research projects, and in providing a rigorous curriculum that addresses contemporary issues and prepares students for citizenship in our democracy.

Our goal is to engage everyone at Broward College with our students and the community at large, and to ensure an atmosphere that encourages an interactive flow of ideas and knowledge. The mission of our office is to support the work of our faculty and staff so that we could collectively offer the best educational experience for our students.

Please take a moment to browse our site and get a sense of the excitement for learning and discovery that exists in the Math Department. I encourage you to visit our campuses and engage any of our faculty and staff. We are dedicated to serving our students and community. If you have any questions or suggestions or just would like to contact me, please feel free to do so at tkoupeli@broward.edu.   

Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces (ALEKS) is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course he/she is taking. You can see a sample of ALEKS by going to the site ALEKS Trial.

Please visit the Math Curriculum page.

​Visit the Academic Success Centers site for information on the Math Tutoring Lab on each campus.  You can make an appointment on the campus that is most convenient to you. 

 

​High school mathematics courses do not meet the prerequisite for any college-level mathematics courses. Refer to the Testing Center website for the latest Math Placement Testing Table.

  • 5 credit class which consists of MAC1105 and corequisite topics from MAT1033 (MAT1033 is no longer offered at Broward College).
  • Face-to-face modality includes guided lecture notes and learning activities – most instructors will require students to purchase a course packet from the bookstore containing the lectures and activities.
  • Course includes non-cognitive soft skills such as growth mindset, time management, how to study, and how to learn.
  • No pre-requisites.

  • Students for whom MAC1105 appears on their intended major program sheet who have not placed into MAC1105.
  • If MAC1105 does not appear on the program sheet for a student’s intended major, then the student should be advised to take MGF1106 (which is the prerequisite for STA2023) depending on program requirements (unless the student expresses a distinct interest in learning algebra, or will need algebra for any future intended program of study).
  • Students who need MAC1105C but are not ready should take MAT0022. All sections of MAT0022 are offered in session 3. This provides adequate time to assess and re-place struggling MAC1105C students, if necessary.
